“Compass Rose”- What a delicate name for something so utilitarian and significant.
I had the pleasure of seeing the Compass Rose I had repaired, at home in its intended place. I wrote about the piece HERE. The globe was a gift for a special birthday. The glass was shattered in shipping, so I created a template for the rose fom the broken pieces, then reset the compass in the new, fused glass base. There was a whole lot of math involved! (Thank God Mike had the tools and formulas I needed.)
The base of the globe is copper colored and the globe itself is gemstones from around the world. It looks so beautiful in our neighbor’s entryway. One of those repair projects that had me scratching my head, but now that I see it all put together, I’m so glad I was able to do it.
