Beachcombing beauties

This beautiful beach cottage lamp and stone sculpture were both made from objects found while beachcombing.  My dad made the light out of driftwood and a woven lobster trap that had washed up with tide (he hollowed out the small log with a paddle bit and lined the shade with cotton duck).  The carved cobble was my birthday present, carved by a Dingle stonemason who looks for perfect cobbles to carve on the beaches of southwest Ireland.

1/6/10:  I've since found out the stone carver's name is Jindrich Stanek.
