That's a bowling ball covered in pretty glass made by my sister.
We swapped for a weaving.
She collects bowling balls. Remind me to take a photo of all the colorful ones in her yard.
The table top mosaic was made by me. A friend gave me this table, she knew it was destined for this!
Just have to point out that the brownish colored shards are actually mirror shards looking at the ceiling.
Use the tools you have - that's a spade shovel shoved (carefully) under the plywood.
Old linoleum under boring, white vinyl. How could we not uncover it.
We harvested a half a medium size bucket of nails pounded into quarter inch plywood under the vinyl. Didn't know what shape this linoleum would be in but we knew there was something good there after seeing it in the closet/pantry off the hallway.
