Hi, we made the "black bike fence" that appears in this cool web site. If you are up to it, you can label it "bike fence at the Diabase Lodge".
Would you like to see more of our bicycle related stuff?

Recycled Bicycles
Reply #9 on : Tue January 31, 2012, 12:22:13
Very cool stuff. I was a little relieved at the end to learn why there might be a surplusage of bicycles when I suspect many 3rd World countries would love to have some of the bikes that are throwaways for these purposes. That said, still cool.
Except for the chair with chains as a backrest.

The Twelve Dancing Princesses
Reply #1 on : Fri May 27, 2011, 13:57:14
I am a bicycle artist. Paula LaPorte and I spent two years completing the Twelve Dancing Princesses, a green interpretation of the Grimm Fairy Tale. They are currently on display in Bennington, VT but I would like to get photo's on your site. Each Princess began with a bicycle frame and grew into her own personality, using found objects, both natural and manufactured. They are kinetic sculpture and audience participation is invited. I love all the wonderful creativity and fun in the photo's on your site. TY for sharing!
