What the heck!??
You know those front porch posts, most commonly seen in the tiny house world on the Tumbleweed Fencl models? Well, here's the style post I'll be getting when I work on another custom tiny house design and build down the road.....I'm not sure if these are creepy, or creatively awesome, but the handiwork of Belfast Maine artist Ron Cowan, is undeniably bad-ass!

If you ever get the chance to check out Belfast, Maine, aside from the world-famous "Perry's Nut House"- one of the few places in the world where you can look at a REAL mummy in a glass case while picking out candy, check out the town's "GREEN" general store (lots of great handmade goods within), and "The Curious Porcupine"- where I spotted this line of carved totems.
Man, would these be great in a garden too! 

 Beetlejuice meets totem poles!?

As you know, I'm a sucker for funky artists, and Ron's now on my wishlist, alongside a newer discovery of mine, "KEEMO"- whose work you'll be seeing on the walls of one of my upcoming builds, and tour videos. Check the guy out!

  1. I'd LOVE these on my front porch!!!

  2. Belfast, Maine is one of my favorite small cities, and I've been admiring these carved limbs for some time. If you go down to the waterfront, there's a whole bunch of them in the water just off shore, getting covered in seaweed that looks like hair draping off of them and definitely somewhat weird looking. But they would make a great porch post! Thanks for sharing the pics.

  3. Whether your prime concern is taste or variety, Vaporfi got you covered.
