Mushroom Lamp – Hot Lava

← Click on the magnifying glass to view a full-size slideshow of all images.

This is a large handmade fused glass mushroom lamp, with bright orange, red and yellow colors that really light up with the lamp is lit.

The design

I started out by cutting circles out of 2 sheets of glass for the circular top. Then I add design elements — large pieces of red/orange/yellow glass in a loosely circular design. Then all layers are fused into one piece over a period of 12 hours. This is followed by a second firing to shape it into the domed bell.

The stem

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.

The light

This lamp comes with a compact LED nightlight-sized lamp that fits inside of the stem. This mushroom has a long neck. The light fits midway up the neck.

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.

Additional details

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.
