Our "Gino's 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 "Gino's mix" is a combination of transparent teal and yellow.  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 to our area before, you likely know that Newport is just to our north.  Gino's (officially, Ocean Blue at Gino's) is a restaurant in the historic Bayfront area in Newport.  Run by Mike and Vanessa, their forte' is fresh seafood, as Mike also runs his own commercial fishing boat.  It's one of our favorite places - a large fish counter, a live Dungenous Crab tank, and tables with great looking lights (from us!) above them.  There are other shade colors through the rest of the restaurant, but that Teal/Yellow combination is very unique to Gino's front end.    

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.
