Okay, now we have a back story. His art of choice on his last installation were glass totems. These beautiful totems were made from vintage lamp globes. Some were many feet in height. I have always wanted to try my hand at making a totem. Yesterday a friend gave me an old globe and I thought, why not--go for it. First, I must confess, I do not have the storehouse of beautiful globes to choose from nor do I have his talent, but I went looking in my "holding pen" of treasures and found a few small pieces to work with today.
I found a tall clear vase, a frosted small globe and an etched amber fluted globe. I decided I could work with these. Plus I had the neat globe with the super cool finial my friend gave to me.
Tools for this project were--a towel (I am messy), landscape sealant and gun, craft sticks to manipulate the glue( did I say I was messy?)
Adornments. I chose shells for this one. I placed some of the prettier shells in the vase and a few around the frosted globe..just because I thought it might look good..I think it does.
