Matt created this delicate window sill sculpture from a solar garden light, twigs, and hot glue -

My little solar sculpture lives on the sill and winks to life for just and hour or so, right after the sun sets following a sunny day. Then it slowly fades, flickers, and goes dark. It’s like my own private echo of the sunset, in case I missed the real thing.

Looks like a nice n’ gentle way to welcome each evening. It’s always great when projects like these find a home in our daily routine. Check out more of Matt’s pics on Flickr.

    Look, he’s using materials that are even better than recycled or “repurposed” (as @#$%s like to call it)–they’re all natural.

    So why isn’t the word “green” in this story fifteen million times?

    Nice job Matt.
    I’ve been wanting to do something similar for a long time and just haven’t gotten around to it. Thanks for the inspiration.
