Wisteria Lamps Completed
18" Wisteria lamps. These elegant lamps were commissioned by an international client.
Each shade has close to 2000 individual pieces of hand cut glass, and each required close to 300 hours to complete. A study Tree Trunk base supports each shade by mating with an openwork crown of cast bronze branches. Sculptural branches insinuate themselves from the crown into the upper portion of the glasswork, giving the top of the lamps a three dimensional look.
Green leaves give way to cascading flowers which blend together in a subtle shades of white, off white, lavender, periwinkle blue, and moonstone. The signature irregular lower edge is a delicate touch that finishes each shade.
