This totem was our first foray into glass etching. It is very fun and addicting. I made stencils using my cricut expression and some contact paper. Too much fun!! :)
Hubs found this really unusual red piece. I thought it went really well with the amber glass I was lucky enough to find a BOX of at the thrift store!!
This is truly one of my very fave pieces I have made. Hubs picked the gorgeous bottle at a yard sale. Can you believe I almost told him to put it back? Geesh.... slap me upside the head!! It was perfect.....I think the little glass bird really "makes" it, don't you??
This is a large birdbath. I really like the shape of the base. I wish I had more of those components!!
This is our version of a patriotic totem. We liked the eagle and the ruby glass ball. The blue plate has stars on it and a President's face. (No, I don't know which one we got - LOL)
We went to a yard sale recently, just down our street. The lady said, "We don't have much that will probably interest you....just a bunch of glass dishes and some ceramics". I smiled sweetly and said, "can I have a box?" Come to find out, her Mother did ceramics, having over 1000 molds and her own kiln. Wow!! This cherub is one I just couldn't pass up. I also loved the green dolphin one.
We live in Quail Hunting territory here in the Deep South. I think someone will find this one pretty nifty (or use it for target practice)!!
The 2 most popular requests I get our for birds and for blue glass. Both are hard to come by, especially at a reasonable price. This lovely totem combines them both! I think it will be a quick seller.
This is my absolute favorite totem that I have made, hands down.
