Once completed, I found myself gazing into this jar, the flipped image reflected in the suspended glass ball draws me in. I thought it might make a great gazing/meditation jar for personal reflection or to just plain escape!
Legends abound about the mysterious powers of gazing balls for example, staring into a globe may create an experience of "oneness" with the universe. In addition to bringing about happiness, good luck, and prosperity, gazing globes were thought to ward off evil in many forms, from spirits and witches, to illness and misfortune. Perhaps these were symbolic in nature--if you find yourself staring into the globe, you can see anyone/anything coming, nothing can sneak up on you!
Made with a thrift store jar, found glass ball, wire, glass beads, Sharpie embellishments.
