Shells under bell jar

Shell under bell jar

 

Made this as another way to show the shells. Had all the pieces, just needed to be put it all together. I love when that happens. I collect odds and ends hoping I’ll use them in something. These pieces were from a dealer in Brimfield who had just cleared out a lab glass factory. Got the bell jar from him, and the base is a lense blank and the chunk of angled glass the shell is on was just a throw in. It all works together. Just needed to be glued together.
