Easter Lily - Part 2
We have completed the 28" Easter Lily shade, which has been delivered to our clients in the Chicago area. This is our newest original Century Studios original lamp design. In our post from February 29th, we showed the progress of this lamp up to transferring the foiled pieces onto the form. Irwin then began the long process of soldering the shade.
After many hours, the exterior was completely soldered and the shade was ready to be removed from the form. The interior of the shade was then soldered and reinforcing wires were added to the inside of the shade for additional strength. Once the soldering was completed, a metal rim is added to the lower edge of the shade. In addition to providing a clean visual bottom edge, the rim adds stability to the shade. This shade then had a decorative bead chain soldered along the lower edge.
