Lamp of the Week: 22″ Nasturtium

The 22″ Nasturtium is a bold pattern that calls for an expressive use of glass. Commissioned by a Chicago area client in 2001, this shade has strong colors and an interesting variety in the glasses. Rippled and granite textures are used throughout to give a jewel like feel to the piece

After receiving the Mosaic Turtleback base, our client christened it, “The mother of all bases!” Created in our studio using molds taken off an original Tiffany example, we agree that this large base has all the bells and whistles. The band of turtleback tiles is illuminated from within, while the mosaic on the lower portion is viewed in reflected light. We can create this base using a variety of turtleback and mosaic color schemes.
