16″ Bamboo

This 16″ Bamboo shade was commissioned by a client in North Carolina. The shade is shown on the Small Stick base.

The background glass for the shade is a translucent green/blue/purple mix that creates a smokey atmosphere. Each of the long leaves are slumped in a kiln to match the curvature of the shade. By eliminating the lines that would be needed to fit the long pieces of glass to the curve, the shade has a realistic look. The various bamboo shades are the only Tiffany Studios’ lamp patterns where slumped glass has been employed so that the lead lines do not break up the glass to fit the curve of the shade.
