It's mid-Summer, or past mid-summer but definitely summer, and time for a crab feast, or at least it's time to show off our crabby metal art.
Here at Three Stone Steps we tend to shy away from painted metal art. It's not really our aesthetic, but true to our Baltimore, Maryland, roots we made an exception for crabs. We have 'em steamed and live. (For those not well versed in the colors of crustaceans, a short primer: for Chesapeake blue crabs, they're generally alive when they're blue--hence the name--and red when steamed.)
Enjoy the slideshow below and happy summer.
‘Tis the season….for the perennial debate among environmentally conscious folks about which is greener: an artificial Christmas tree or a real, grown on a farm one. Here at Three Stone Steps, we think the answer is simple: a recycled metal tree! And, we have three standing ones from which to choose:
The adorable small tree, perfect for your desk or shelf, measures 3″ x 5.” The middle tree is 10″ x 14″, and the pappa bear big tree comes in at 13″ x 25.5″. (And, yes, these are most definitely not shown to scale.) Right now, these are available for wholesale and at our live events. Should you want just one, please get in touch and we’ll make it just right.
Happy Friday. For today’s Friday Photo (video) we have a treat: a beautifully filmed longish video showing modern Uzbekistan, including a focus on the applied arts. (Weirdly, the needle arts, including suzanis–probably the best known of the Uzbek arts and carried here at Three Stone Steps–is not included.) And, now to the trick: this view of Uzbekistan is long, in Russian, and not subtitled.
Have a Happy Halloween–and may it be filled with many sweet treats!
Yes, it’s only October, but here at Three Stone Steps we’ve been busy shipping our great recycled metal art menorahs to retailers. And, you know what? They make us happy. Not happy because it means the holidays aren’t all that far off, but happy because they are so amazingly wonderful. (Ok. We’re biased.)
Take a look at this and tell me it doesn’t make you happy, too. (And, what’s not to like? Recycled, fair trade, handmade, and gooorgeous!) Want to see more? Just check out our recycled Judaica page right here.
