Bordello Floor Lamp

Bordello floor lamp 001

Forged Steel, Blown Glass
dimensions 60"x12"x16"

September 2011

This lamp was fabricated for the Guild's exhibit at the Perry Mansion, and is a continuation of the Bordello Lamp series that I have been working on for about 10 years.  The main feature that qualifies the lamp to be a part of the series is the shade.  Initially the lamps shades had colored and textured paper, but now, through a collaboration with glass artist Carlyn Ray, we have successfully blown glass into the shades.
