The surface between the two is the paint which was done two years ago using semi-gloss latex paint. It is completely dry of course, but is in front of a very sunny window. The two objects (table and glass sculpture) have been in contact for about five months. The sculpture is more valuable than the table.
Thank you so much for trying to help!
Yes, I had been thinking about using a hair dryer all around the edge of the sculpture, which has a circumference of about 46 inches, but I was afraid that the heat might crack the glass....and then I would die! Would there be enough heat to end up doing that?........or, is it better as you suggested, underneath the table? Also, if the heat fron the sunlight might have caused the paint to melt, would that happen with the dryer?
I certainly will accept your advice. I'll try it later when I have more time and can summon up the courage! I'm new at this "Just Answer". Is there any way that I can let you know how it worked? In any case, thank you for your time and patience. I really appreciate it!
