18″ Peony

We were commissioned by a client in Georgia to create this colorful 18″ Peony shade. The flowers for this shade are a lush gold pink – meaning that gold is required to create the fuchsia color in the glass. The flowers are set against a summery blue sky, tinged with pink and green that blends both the leaf and flower colors into the background.

In the above photo, Irwin is selecting flower petal glass during the layout of the shade. Each petal is considered for color, shading and texture. Once the glass selection is complete, each piece is foiled by hand and then the shade is soldered together.

The completed shade was mated with the elegant Library base (23.5″ tall).
