Putting it all together, where do I begin?

After I had fluxed, foiled and soldered every piece, I decided to get all the items together to figure out what I wanted to do. To make the crown of any lamp, you lay out the general design so that you are mindful of the big picture. Even though all the pieces are not the same, seeing the overall design helps you know where to put certain pieces so that the crown is as balanced in design as possible.

I took a bowl from my kitchen to help me get started. It is the green color you see underneath the beginning of the crown.

Adding the sun and other pieces.
