22" Trumpet Vine

The 22" Trumpet Vine shade is a large turban shaped lamp covered in a profusion of blossoms. This piece was commissioned by an overseas client and it is now on its way to their home.

Large floral shades take quite a bit of time and planning to create. Much time was spent picking the glass and composing the layout. The Impressionistic coloration for this shade was achieved by digging deep into our library of glass, looking for just the right pieces to bring the shade to life.

For this shade, we blended glass from many foundries including Schlitz, Lins, Uroborus, Youghiogheny, Wissmach and Chicago Art Glass. The mix of colors, textures and transparency join together to produce a vivid color scheme that celebrates the beauty of art glass.

The completed shade is shown below on the distinctive Root base.
