 :) I do understand your frustration, believe me.  ::)
I think your sculpture is of a couple of big water birds, which are a fairly unusual feature, but this is not an area of glass I know anything about.

Your pics don't blow up as much as I'd like them to, the instructions provided in the link I gave you would fix that. Others who would know more do need to be able to see details clearly.
We also need to see what the base looks like. Even if there's "nothing to see there" the sort of "nothing" can tell us a lot.
I don't know what systems you're using, so I can't help with details.
I use paintshop pro, which works on my windows 7, I can't help with anything more advanced than that.
If you can't find the right instructions for your systems, click on the envelope under my username and send me a private message. That way, you can then email me the images and I'll resize them for you.
Cheers, Sue (M)

A plain background helps loads.
(a couple of sheets of A4 would do)
We're trying to work out what a three dimensional object looks like from a 2D image.
You have the advantage of knowing what it looks like properly before you take the photo, so when you see the image, it looks as it should.
But to us, who don't have that advantage, we can't really work out what bit is where and reflections from stuff in the background don't help.

The carpet? seems to reflect up into one bird's body and then the up into the tips of the others' wings.

Did you use the very closest-close-up feature of the camera? On enlargement, they seem to go out of focus, so detail is lost.

And it is sideways on, turning it around 90 degrees would help too. ;D
Do get in touch if you're stuck. :)

If you can't manage to resize your pics (and we do know it can be a problem with images taken on an iPad) you can send me copies directly and I'll resize them and add them to your post for you.
