Lamp of the Week: 28″ Dragonfly

Alive with movement, the 28″ Dragonfly (flying diagonal) is covered in swirling dragonflies dancing across the jewel encrusted surface of the shade with rhythmic precision. Created in 1996, this shade is made almost entirely out of Lins glass with pressed glass jewels by Century Studios. The Lins Glass Foundry was located in Florida and closed more than 20 years ago. Inspired by the sheets of glass, the color pallet of the shade is a lively mix of greens, purples and deep wine red tones. Intense blue in both the glass and jewels is used as an surprising accent color throughout the piece. The shade is in a local collection.
