Homemade flying saucer Hanukkah Menorah

This year's Hanukkah Menorah (Hanukiah) — a flying saucer (UFO). Every year we're trying to come up with a new idea for homemade Hanukkah Menorah. Last year it was the Hanukiah with houses, the year before — Hanukiah with jugs, and so on.

This one is made using Keramikal modeling clay. I rolled a piece of clay into a ball and removed its center, leaving approx. 3/8" thick walls (1cm). Then I created the rims using the coiling technique and made the legs, let dry, baked, decorated. Nothing special. Its diameter about 5 1/2 inch (14cm).
