Stars In Your Pebbles

timberlake-march-1-2009-200

If you make a pebble path, why not add a star. These stars used to be very hard to come by. They were first offered as antiques. The stars can still be seen on very old buildings. They are attached to a rod that runs all the way through to the other side of the entire building. Earthquake rods help hold the building together should such an event happen. 

The star above does have a rod and bolt to secure it in the pebble path. I’m sure it is probably set in concrete because it is in a public parking lot. This star is in the parking lot of the Bob Timberlake Gallery in Lexington, NC.

At the top of the gallery, you can see a cupola and the weather vane is a tobacco leaf. Tobacco use to be the number one crop in NC.  Bob Timberlake is an artist and everything about this gallery is a treat for the eyes. 

You can see inside and read more about the gallery at a previous POST I did on Bob Timberlake.

  1. What a fun idea. You could recreate the famous Hollywood stars and make each star a member of your household.
    They do have those brick making kits that allow you to write on the bricks. Kids would love it.
