Garden Art.  A second mushroom I've created from recycled glass pieces---The dome from a light fixture, upturned candle holder, glass jar & a solar light.  Baked on painted finish.

The dome in this one has a much smaller opening in the top than the previous one.  I was afraid the sun's rays wouldn't penetrate & charge the battery but I left it 7 hrs in the sun & it shone for about 7 hours after that.  Evidently, the UV rays aren't blocked significantly by even the colored glass,






I've added a nighttime photo.  The dome has a very soft glow but the splendid display at the base offsets any lack above.  By using the faceted jelly jar, the light is fractured to give a lace like pattern on the countertop.  The light also shines thru the amber colored candleholder to present a golden aura around the base.

Beautiful. I love the way you used an old light fitting with such lovely flowers.

Absolutely love this idea. I love the way you painted it and put everything together. Wow! Love the light it shows on the ground. Special.
