(shown over Light Tobacco with "Wrap" color pattern in above photo).  

Our "Lava mixover a background of either Light Tobacco or Eggshell White, available in a variety of color patterns.  This is our largest Shade size (17-20" wide and 7-8" deep), which works well with down-facing table lamps and up-facing floor lamps.   

The "Lava mix" is a combination of transparent and opaque reds and browns.  The solid background layer of opaque Light Tobacco not only assures that you will see no glare from the bulb, but adds a rich, gold look.  

Examples with these colors are shown below to illustrate the variation in color between pieces, and examples of the various color patterns available are shown below that.

Shade Color Example: "Lava Mix" over Light Tobacco Straight Edge

Below are examples of our Lava Mix over Light Tobacco in our Straight Edge style of pendant shades.






Shade Color Patterns: "Wrap"

All color patterns are established while the glass is very soft, likely at 1600 to 1800 degrees F. - and before the piece is blown.  Multiple examples are shown to illustrate how varied the effect can be.

The "body wrap" pattern is accomplished by using a separate "bit" of molten glass to accumulate various colors, usually in separate areas of the bit.  The wrap is applied while extremely hot (and therefore soft) to the main piece, which creates an extremely varied movement of the colors over the surface of the piece.

Applying a "body wrap" is significantly more complex than producing other color patterns, usually requiring a second person to be involved in the process.  Subsequently, the "body wrap" patterns are usually more expensive. 






Shade Color Patterns: "Feathered"

All color patterns are established while the glass is very soft, likely at 1600 to 1800 degrees F. - and before the piece is blown.  Multiple examples are shown to illustrate how varied the effect can be.

The "feathered" color pattern results from pulling a metal hook through the glass, thereby moving the color as well.  The result is varied - most pronounced where the hook has actually contacted the glass, and with diminishing effect from that line of contact.
