This week we completed an 18" Peony lamp for a local client. The client had asked us to create a shade that was full of color and personality. The challenge on a shade of this type is to put strong color into it, but to still have the colors blend. With its rich red flowers and the amber/green/red background, the completed shade has a warm glow. The blue/green borders give this piece the extra excitement our client was looking for.
The shade is pictured on the Ribbed base. The bottom of the lamp base mimics the shape of the shade, making it a perfect combination. The base rests on five balls, and the ribbed surface provides a subtle three dimensional quality to the metalwork.
