For Part II of the intermediate stained glass class involved making a four panel lampshade. While choosing a pattern, we wowed about the 6 panel lampshade. Not advisable for a first time project.
Glass of all four sides of the lampshade all cut and sides smoothened.The crown (left) was optional but it just topped the lampshade beautifully. We were asked to decide on the crown after we had soldered together the four panels. Well, we all wanted the crowns.
This is before the patina was applied. Did you notice the slightly crooked crown?
Somehow, I prefer the solder to be flat which is what it should be on the underside but not the front. It should be rounded/beaded on the front.The stand is just for the photograph. This lamp stand is a little too small for this lampshade. I ordered a slightly taller one and it will be shipped in soon. I thoroughly enjoyed this class and the result was most rewarding. The next class will be the leading class which is still tentatively scheduled. I hope I get to attend that class.
