This is a handmade fused glass mushroom lamp, featuring earthy, mossy colors.
I start by cutting circles out of 2 sheets of glass for the circular top. Then I add design elements — in this case, colored bits of glass in concentric circles. The size of each piece of glass is smaller closer to the center.
The fused circles and design elements are then 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 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 night light size 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. The first two photos show the front and back of this lamp.
