Lamp of the Week: 15″ Spider

With its three dimensional arachnid silently resting atop its web awaiting the approach of the unwary, the 15″ Spider shade elicits strong reactions from viewers. For this shade, we used a transparent sheet glass created at our studio (we no longer have a glass furnace). The lightly filamented glass perfectly captures the feel of a spider’s web. Created in 2003 and now in a private collection, the shade is shown on the Mushroom base (16″ tall).
