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.
