Miniatures 2007 / 2008

Fish Bowls

A second try. Somehow I did not get along with the resin very well, this time. Although I liked the individual parts used for this project (see below) the whole did not look as good as I had hoped. Ths fish slightly dissolved in the resin, and they did not stay in place. And dirt came up to the surface. :-(

Made from brass wire and paper for the auction of the IGMA's Guild School

The empty bowls
They are handblown glas. The bases are jewellry findings. Inside: real Berlin dirt, and plants made from wire and dried stuff.
