Cube Floor Lamp












Be sure to check out “The Making Of …” this work.


(2008)

Simple in overall shape, this cube-like lamp design is all about the glass – the rich, dramatic textured hand-rolled variations in greens, blood-browns, caramels, and white (note the mottled effect in some of the glass – it’s wonderful).  You’ll see that Greg has utilized this form factor before.

Pre-cut glass of this nature is a work of art in itself – it’s almost a shame to work it into another form!  Which is why you’ll notice larger swaths of colour accentuate naturally-forming ebbs and flows of both.  There are no “random” shapes in these panels: colour and texture choices interweave to create a dramatic presentation, celebrating the glass.

The video clip below the slideshow reveals in motion this flow between each panel – delicious!

This is a striking lamp made from all hand-rolled glass (mostly Uroboros) in the copper-foil method.  Lead came is used around the perimeter of both ends for a more finished look and for a small degree of shock protection.

The following Slideshow documents the basic steps in its construction and below that I have embedded a four-clip short Videoshow of some basic techniques used.

Learning the making of an artwork can stimulate one’s appreciation for it and for this exciting and stimulating medium in general- that is my goal here – enjoy!
