Making Teacup Lamps - Part 1

Cleaned Teacup Saucers and Cups
I'm in the process of making 23 more teacup lamps and lampshades.  The first step was cleaning them and getting the stickers off.

Gluing cup and saucer
Next comes gluing the teacup to the saucer.  It takes a while as the glue has to set overnight.  It is also very stinky.  But the E6000 gives a nice, tight hold on the ceramic.

Philipines teacup saucer. Made in 1983.
Some of the teacups come from interesting places like China, Japan, and this one from the Philipines.  It was made in 1983.
