Sunday Stills: Rust

Rust? In western Oregon? Piece of cake.

The following photos are a study of the iron fireplace grate that made it as far as our front porch (it weighs a ton). It originally came from my grandfather's home (if I have that correct). Our house has a gas fireplace and therefore can't provide a home for the grate. But I think it's acquired an interesting patina during its sojourn on the porch.

To see more renditions of rust, visit Sunday Stills.

Love the design! Too bad you can't find a use for it.

I would definitely find a home for this piece, even if it is outside in the yard. It is a fun family piece.
