Solomon's Castle

Alternative views: Large Slide Show, Slide Show

Howard S. Solomon is a sculptor who
works in re-cycled, or "found" materials.
Picture

His biggest project is his home, which he built himself.
Picture

He seems to have taken "A man's home is his castle" literally.
Picture

Before beginning our tour we visited the "Boat in a Moat"
Picture

It's a restaurant built by Howard and run by one of his children.
Picture

It was a beautiful day, so we opted to eat outside.
Picture

The castle is made from re-cycled printing press plates.
Picture

We were lucky enough to have Howard himself lead out tour today.
Picture

He has a story to go with each piece.
Picture

These were from his "coat hanger period".
Picture

You need to go and hear the stories first hand.

Picture

His newest piece, made from oil drums, completed in 2000.
Picture


Picture

He lives in the castle. His living room,
dining room, kitchen, etc. are all part of the tour.
Picture

The baby sitter in the dungeon.
Picture

As a woodworker, I appreciated his plane wall.
Picture

Am sure Bruce would appreciate his picture window.
Picture

The picture window, in the center, from outside.
Picture

Note the etched glass.
Picture

After completing the gallery tour, ...
Picture

we walked the nature trail.
Picture

A beautiful way to end the visit.
Picture

I recommend a visit to Solomon's Castle to anyone ...
Picture

with a few hours to spend in the "real" Florida.
