Assemblage under glass

I have been having fun with a new idea of combining the super shine of clean glass with the old worn assemblage items I'm so addicted to. Here a photo I love "chicken boy" or in this case three chicken boys ride around a real nest that is enclosed with a iron wire fence. On the next level is a real quail egg that has the appearance of it floating above the nest. And on the top stands a Flickers flight feather. The three levels are soldered together for stability.



This next piece looks so fun sitting on the coffee table, from across the room it looks like a hurricane lamp or an old light bulb, it's not until you get up close that you can see it is a assemblage.

The top or finial is a bell from an old type writer then in the small glass globe are old tin stars...


A boy on a pony rides among trees made from type writer hammers, the ground is covered in shinny black seed beads. The title of this piece is " A Ride Under The Stars"

There will me more to come I have numerous idea's....

These are amazing! Like magical little worlds caught in glass. Or something out of an old curiousity shop that will come to life at night. I love them!

GAWD Tory! They look like they exist in another dimension. Really draws me in, curious, wondering about the back story.

Another Winner!

We're going to have to create a Tory museum.
