This is our six foot tall pagoda I made while I was working, in 1987."When I had more time." Like the lanterns it was to compliment the koi pool I built the year before. The designs came, partly, from a book given me by a friend which came as one of the extras he received when he bought a new Nissan car. These days you can find photos easily on the internet. I made it in an hour or so in the evenings after work over a period of about two weeks, much in the same way I made the lanterns in our garden, fine concrete mix with an outer skin of sand/cement mortar. But unlike the lamps it needed 19 different "castings" Each time, the same molds had to be re-sized to get the required reduction in size. It needs a bit of a tart up every few years, as even though it's painted with Hammerite paint it suffers from the weather and some of the detail has been erroded over time. It sits on two Corporation paving stones. The balcony balustrades are of hardwood moldings, set into the concrete. The extent to which I went to make the "simulated pin joints" that support the roofs go unnoticed. The detail is as fine as I could get with fine concrete mix. The Sorin (that thing on the top), is a "work of art." A collection of drilled through brass cupboard door handles, plastic shower curtain rings, plastic milk bottle tops, the top off a Decleor shaving gel aerosol, nuts and bolts, wooden beads and a plastic garden lighting stake with holes I drilled in it, threaded on to a long bolt. I was going to do it today, but it looks like it might rain, so I will probably do it when I come home from golf tomorrow afternoon. It won't take long.
