For Friday 13th

Digitally manipulated photo of a cat goblet I had given to me. The glass globe in the top of it is a paperweight. The texture and light highlights are from using photodirector. You can position the highlights over and over so I chose three lots, each placed where they would be reflected off places such as the cats eye. I chose to make this because its Friday 13th which is a day of superstitious fears in the UK.

Glass paperweights

Paperweights I’ve collected over several years. I’ve moved them because the cats had started knocking them off the shelves. I will make sure they don’t cause heat when the sun shines through them onto the windowledge. They can act as lenses and sometimes they have been known to cause fires so I’m thinking of putting something behind them to block direct sunlight. it was only when I took them down to dust them that I realised I had so many. Sometimes you dont really realise you are collecting things till you have a lot of them… then you think where did they come from?
