My daughter has another event coming up in September and she asked me to make a couple totems for table centerpieces. One needed to be a masculine Fall theme so I made this.
Here is a good sandwich you might want to try. I used a slice of my sourdough bread and topped it with Jarlsberg cheese then broiled it. I topped it with skillet browned asparagus sprinkled with freshly cracked black pepper and sea salt. Add a fried egg and there you have it. Can't be simpler or tastier.
Anyhow...back to the totem. I hit the thrift stores and bought some cheap glass pieces. I like using glass cake plates for the base. Then I used aquarium glue and glued a pressed glass bowl turned upside down to the plate. If you click the photo to enlarge it you can see that I added a small glass bowl turned upside down inside the hurricane lamp which is glued to the bowl. This little bowl will be used as a pedestal to give the statue height.
Next, I glued this hunter statue to the pedestal. I turned that small plate you see upside down and glued it to the top of the hurricane.
Then added an amber plate shaped like a sunflower glued to the small plate.
I then glued a ceramic pumpkin to the amber plate and turned a small fishbowl upside down and glued it to the amber plate. The top is made out of an upside down small wineglass and topped it with the upper portion of a glass pear. The small glass bowl which I used as the statue's pedestal is actually the bottom of the glass pear turned upside down. Follow that?
