Lamp of the Week: 24″ Snowball

The 24″ Snowball is the deepest Tiffany Studios shade design we offer. While the shade is occasionally used as a large table lamp, its generous proportions are best suited for use as a floor lamp or chandelier. The irregular lower edge accentuates the impression of a large specimen with its branches bent by the weight of flower clusters in full bloom. We created this 24″ Snowball as a floor lamp for a local client in 2018 with an emphasis on whites and blues.  A wide variety of mottled, streaky, and textured glasses were used for the flowers. The clear blue sky at the top of the shade is reflected throughout the piece, appearing amid the flowers and leaves. To keep the overall tone of the lamp light and airy, the abundant foliage has a mix of lighter greens.
