Well I couldn't resist being a "copy cat" and making a plate, bowl, saucer and holiday ball assemblage piece. I went beyond (and that is no surprise huh?) and attached glass beads to the cut glass plates and then strung hundreds of glass and acrylic beads to make my homage to Jaz's totem a little "sparklier".
I am very pleased with my glass tower/totem. I hope the close-ups give you a sense of how the 11 separate pieces of glass came to be a combined effort to being a tower. (top to bottom: holiday cut ball, small pressed plate, clear glass pedestal, larger pressed plate, 2 small bubble bowls, small clear saucer, large pressed bowl, ribbed vase, medium clear glass bowl, large pressed plate. All but the holiday ball was junk store finds.)
And I know you're asking...you're going to put that in your garden???? Well that was the initial plan but now after all the beading hours...I'm not so keen on the idea of a neighbor's cat spraying it or the wind tumbling it down so.....I guess we're just gonna hafta stare at it and my family is obligated to oooooo and aaaaaaah. As if.
