This piece has four elements: the bottom base, the pedestal, the metal part, and the globe.
I made the base by pouring cement into a trash can lid and adding some pieces of glass and porcelain.
The metal piece under the globe is an old lamp part. I already had the concrete pedestal.
The globe was from an old hanging light fixture. It had a hole in the top, which I glued tiles over and it disappeared.

I made this piece with found objects, cement, garage sale tiles, and a blue wine bottle that I broke into pieces. Before starting the mosaic, I put the glass pieces in my rock tumbler for a couple days to knock down the sharp edges.
