Lamp of the week: 28″ Laburnum

The 28″ Laburnum is one of the largest Tiffany shades we create. With over 2000 individual pieces of glass, it is also one of the most time consuming shades to produce. The Laburnum has an irregular lower edge, lending an air of naturalism to the piece. For this example we combined mottled glass in tones of yellow and amber for the hanging flower clusters. Spring greens and a pale blue sky keep the shade light and airy. This shade was commissioned in 2003 by a Midwest client for use as a floor lamp. The shade also makes a stunning chandelier fixture.
