We call this amazing piece our "Banishment Orb." It's where bothersome creatures get banned; possibly for life. The orb was constructed from top to bottom with a painted chess piece, a vintage ink well (plastic spider inside), ribbed jar with lid (turned upside down with the mouse inside), a black painted candlestick.
Glass pieces were given a light dusting of spray frost to age them. Them they were glued together using E600. All seams were hidden with ribbon or twine.
