The green lamp is 8″ x 4″ and powered by two AA batteries which makes it easy to put on a shelf or anywhere electricity is not an option. So far i’ve gotten about 30 hours of use from one set of batteries. The pink-purple-ish night light is 9″x5″ and powered by a small solar charged LED unit. The panel is hidden in a false bottom created with thin strips of black glass. The unit is removable and can easily be recharged. Different colors and […]
This piece is over 100 years old and was cracked in transport from the dealer to my neighbor. I replaced a broken clear piece in the middle by cutting out the old lead, scraping off a lot of oxidation and soldering. While I couldn’t find a perfect match for the cracked piece, we came pretty close. With that done, I added an outer border so it can be mounted in the front door of their home. The photo with the border is a first […]
This is the start of restoring our front door. I’ve sanded off at least 5 layers of paint, probably dating back to the 20’s, knocked out the lower panels and windows on top. The overall design is meant to compliment the leaded window I recently mounted on the front of our house which is just to the right. I’ve used the foil method for the top panel with three types of glass and will use long lead came lines for the lower […]
Just wanted to show my latest glass creation. Ideal for book shelves, table tops or wherever you want to have a decorative lamp, but don’t want to be tied to an electrical outlet. This is a AA battery operated lamp prototype measuring about 12″ tall with 4″ wide panels. I’m doing a series of these in different colors and shapes. The next of which will be powered by ultra thin circular batteries and easily hidden switch box.
Measuring 48″ x 48″, the lead is falling off and some sections are collapsing despite the supports. There are also several broken pieces of glass , missing circle and a wood frame that will be replaced. I’m taking the panel completely apart and rebuilding it with new lead came. In the end it will become a giant light box mounted on a wall. See close ups and a progress pic below. It’s cleaning up beautifully! SEE THE FINISHED PANEL BY CLICKING HERE.
