(shown over Eggshell White with "Swirled" color pattern in standard size in above photo)

Our "Ocean mix" over a background of either Eggshell White or Water Blue, 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 "Ocean mix" is a combination of transparent and opaque teals and jade greens.  The solid background layer of opaque Eggshell not only assures that you will see no glare from the bulb, but adds some gray tones to provide a more earth-toned appearance.   

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 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: "Swirled"

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 "swirled" pattern is acheived by making small swirls or twists in the glass with a tool like a shears.  It creates a nicely random movement of the colors.
