16″ Dogwood

With its fresh color palette, this 16″ Dogwood has the uplifting feel of a spring morning. The shade is shown on the classic Greek Urn base.

Color, density, and texture are all carefully considered when selecting glass for a shade. To keep the overall look of the shade light and airy Bill Campbell chose a semi transparent amber glass streaked with wisps of green and pink to play against the mottled flower and leaves.

A special feature of this piece is the three dimensional leaded branches that weave across the surface of the shade. Irwin Terry is shown soldering the branches.

On the completed shade the three dimensional leaded branches give the finished shade added visual and tactile interest. This piece is in a private home in Minnesota.
