A faceted 50mm jewel was used in the center where the punty rod was detached.  A really clever and beautiful piece of workBrass lamp frame

Step1.  Safely remove the outer copper foil off the blown bowl with a (hair drier).
Step2. Cut the bowl and extract 1/3rd of the bowl with a (band saw).
Step3. Create a mold using the original 1/3 glass to make 3 new glass panels.
Step4. Create a NEW brass frame to hold 3 new glass panels. (next picture)
Step 5. Re attach the old copper foil overlay over the new panels.  (see pictures).
