Steampunk Furniture from Explosive Mines!


Hello again!  A brief entry today about innovative uses of scrapped materials - potentially explosive ones!  In actuality, they are deactivated mines which have been converted to a number of domestic uses.  Estonian sculptor Mr. Mati Karmin has transformed these discarded works and formed them into a number of household items, including a baby carriage, an aquarium, and even a BBQ!  The above fireplace is a work of beauty, so if you'd like to see more, please turn to the article at the Treehugger website (yes, that's the name of the website), or go directly to Mr. Karmin's location, at: http://www.marinemine.com/ .

Now thats a fireplace to be proud of. There is just something so right sitting next to a wood fire on a cold winters evening.

@ G - Indeed! I have been trying to convince the other half the abode's interior needs a complete re-work, but alas, that might be a losing battle.

@ Miss Carver - Dear Breezy, thanks again! :)
