Lamp of the Week: 18" Poinsettia

Commissioned in 2008 by a client in Illinois, this lush 18" Poinsettia has a deep blue fracture glass background peeking through the olive green trellis. The red poinsettias are a mix of textured and smooth red glasses. The shade is shown on the distinctive Osage Pottery base.

14" Daffodil on Mushroom Base

This week we completed a 14" Daffodil for a local client. If it appears that we have been showing a lot of these shades lately, it is because we have had multiple orders for this design from different clients. Sometimes these things go in runs, and each of the lamps has been approached fresh with individual color choices. This shade is light and bright with sunny flowers.

Lamp of the Week: 22" Dogwood

This 22" Dogwood shade was created as a showroom piece in 2001. It was purchased by a local client to use as a chandelier over her dining room table. In 2011, we retrofitted the shade to become an inverted chandelier when the client moved to a new home. The white, pink, and green tones of the shade give the piece a light, airy look.

Tudor Window Project

This set of three windows was recently commissioned by a local client for a bathroom in their Tudor-style home. Illustrating subjects chosen by our clients, each of the four pictorial insets were hand painted and kiln fired by Bill Campbell. The insets provide the opportunity to create your own story while soaking in the tub!

Lamp of the Week: 16" Dogwood

The 16" Dogwood shade is covered with mature blossoms. This piece has a subtle coloration of light pinks, blues and greens. The shade is shown on the Swamp Flower base. Both shade and base were created at Century Studios in 2001 for our showroom and are in a local collection.
