Dragonfly#1

Here is a dragonfly made with 100% recycled material.  Her wingspan is about 10″, and height including the base is about the same.

The glass is held together with copper foil, which breaks down in winter weather. This piece would do just fine outside during the summer and fall. It would likely hold up for several years.

It is made from street glass, copper wire ( a piece of 12-2), some reclaimed copper, and a piece of used 2×8. The top part of the base is a ceiling light canopy from about 1930.The glass is held together with copper foil, which breaks down in winter weather, so I move this guy inside when it starts to get cold.
