Lamp Designs

Volume 28 - Issue 1

A 16"-diameter cone-shaped floral lamp shade featuring iris blooms. This tutorial shares techniques for developing original designs by drawing cartoons on manila folders, then cutting and placing design pieces on the desired shade mold with the help of Tacky Wax. Background glass pieces fill in the remainder of the design before foiling and soldering the lamp shade. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique. This article was originally published on page 50 in the Spring 2012 issue of Glass Patterns Quarterly. Design, Fabrication, and Text by John Emery
