(shown with "Wrap" color pattern in standard size in above photo).

Our "Drift Inn mixover a background of 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 "Drift Inn mix" is a combination of transparent teal and lava red.  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.

If you've been in our area, you've probably been at the Drift Inn in nearby Yachats, OR - just down the coast from us.  Besides having live music every night and a fantastic menu, they have all sorts of our Shades for their lighting!  Linda wanted a variety of colors, so the only ones that are not one-of-a-kind are those over the bar area.  Those colors make such a statement there, I thought it was only appropriate to name this color combination after the restaurant.  This is a mix of Lava Red and Teal applied over Eggshell.    

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: "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.






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.
