The Ring

When you deconstructed as many barrels as I did this summer/fall, you’re bound to have a few spare parts. I ended up with an overabundance of rusted rings. And needed to come up with an idea to put those old beauties to use.

“The Ring” is another functional industrial art piece. By connecting three antique barrel rings of various sizes and attaching chain, this piece can hold a candle, hanging basket, bird feeder, you name it…just close up the last chain link (or switch it out for an ‘s’ hook or clip) once you’ve decided what you want to hang there and you’re ready to go. Change it out for the seasons! Hang it indoors or outdoors! A customer who recently purchased one of these was going to use it for her table as a hanging chandelier.

I first thought of this as “The Pumpkin” because I was having too much fun fanning out and closing the rings, but…it’s better as “The Ring.” But if you get bored, that’s a pretty fun activity. (I apparently need to get out more.)

The rings ARE adjustable, however – meaning you can make the piece look like a globe, or line the rings all up so they aren’t fanned out. You choose! Ā The rings are screwed together at the top and bottom of the piece.
