“Art All Around Us” Window Shutter Holders

If you keep your eyes open you will see little pieces of art, art that wasere made just because it would be fun to do, and beautiful to see. Many things do not need to be ornamental, but dedication to the craft made it that way.

Here is an example; Shutter holders.

Many,

ok, almost all,

of the house we saw in Germany had shutters and therefore had shutter retainers. They are simple little devices to hold the shutters open.

They didn’t need to be made interesting, but they were.

We saw several styles, all based on a head design. they were cast metal and mounted with a cam type base so they would lock the piece upright when needed.

So I celebrate the shutter retainer makers of Germany for their idea of making these little gadgets interesting and fun.

If you see anything like these little pieces of art, I would love to have you share them with me.
