This mushroom and the Geometrix 1 mushroom are a departure from my usual organic swirly designs. The colors are, too: bold red, metallic bronze (center square) and green accent dots. The base/stem of this mushroom is an olive green, not as dark as the Geometrix 1 lamp. This lamp has a little surprise at the top — the metallic bronze center square lights up blue with the lamp is on.
The cap was created using a mushroom-colored piece of circular glass that I added several glass pieces in various geometric shapes and sizes and melted mostly flat. Some gentle ridges at the outlines.
The stem is a recycled bottle that I cut, ground and polished, sandblasted, then annealed in my kiln for added durability. Finally, I added a light glaze for easy cleaning (damp cloth) and to reduce fingerprints on the sandblasted surface.
This lamp comes with a compact LED nightlight-sized lamp that fits inside of the stem.
If you prefer to place this mushroom in a garden space or have a lamp of your own that you would prefer to use, you can select the ‘no light’ option to receive the mushroom only.
This mushroom is one piece. The top and stem have been bonded with clear silicone. To learn more about the creation of glass mushrooms, please see this blog post – behind the handmade scenes.
