14" Dragonfly

Tiffany Studios designed dragonfly shades shapes and sizes ranging from 14" to 28". The 14" Dragonfly is a delightful shade that makes a great accent lamp. Shown on the Mushroom base, the green dragonflies hover over a blue/green heavily rippled background that has hints of yellow and white. This special glass was created by Schlitz Studios in the 1990's and has been waiting patiently in our glass library to come out and dazzle everyone. We just completed this lamp for our showroom where it is currently available.

Lamp of the Week: 16" Apple Blossom

The 16" Apple Blossom shows flowering tree branches in this uncomplicated Tiffany Studios shade design. The brilliant yellow/orange background imparts a welcoming glow, and the three dimensional chipped glass flower centers add sculptural interest to the shade. The shade is shown on the Lily Pad Blown Glass & Bronze Base. The bronze base is created at our studio and the green glass is made to our specifications by a master glass blower. This lamp was created in 2008 and is in a private local collection.

Lamp of the Week: 26" Turtleback Chandelier

This 26" Turtleback Chandelier was created using large turtleback tiles which were pressed using molds taken from an original example. The spaces between the large tiles are filled by hand cutting/fitting/faceting chunks cut from additional tiles. The finished shade realistically resembles the shell of a large tortoise. This lamp was created as a showroom piece and is now in a private collection.

Lamp of the Week: 16" Persian with Chain Mail

Created for a client in 2012, the 16" Persian with Chain Mail shade has an exotic feel. With its decorative band of arabesques set against a geometric background, the shade is both playful and elegant. The addition of the Chain Mail borders gives the shade an additional layer of interest. We can add Chain Mail to almost any shade, and it is especially effective on chandelier fixtures. The shade is shown on the willowy Grooved base.

22" Dragonfly

Dragonfly shades are equally stunning when created in a wide variety of color variations. We have made dragonfly shades in color tones ranging from delicate whites to vibrant greens and reds, but this was the first time we have been commissioned to create a midnight blue 22" Dragonfly shade.

The background of this "night time dragonfly" was carefully blended together from several types of glass and lights with a deep glowing blue with hints of fuchsia and purple. The jewels that dot the surface of the shade were pressed at our studio and are a mix of many blue tones. The velvety red dragonfly bodies and multicolored wings add just the right accent of color to the lower portion of the shade. The shade is shown on the Twisted Vine base.
