While in Florida this past week, my husband, son and mother-in-law visited Solomon's Castle. This castle was built by an artist who has also covered the grounds and interior with unique metal sculptures. He recycles anything he can think of and incorporates it into his art. He has a boat on the site that is now a restaurant. He constantly creates with metal, stained glass and many other items. This is a large scale example of what my husband loves to do with metal. Maybe some of the things have inspired him. I expect a new sculpture in our yard this summer!
