Lamp of the Week: 18″ Grape

With its lush foliage and fully ripened grapes, the 18″ Grape is one of Tiffany Studios’ most successful lamp designs. The shade begins with a cast bronze crown of open branches at the top that mates with the sturdy Tree Trunk base (23″ tall).  The glass continues the flow of the branchwork and cascades downwards, ending in a naturalistic irregular lower edge. We used a wide variety of glasses to create the exciting coloration on this shade. Grapes in tones of blue, purple, burgundy, and red intermingle with the lush foliage, playfully dotting the surface of the shade. Commissioned in 2015 by a client in Vermont, the shade is a lively mix of color and texture.
