Nicely done.

How does it stand up to the heat from the bulb? That’s too nice to have it crack due to heat.

I have a compact fluorescent bulb in it which doesn’t get as hot as an incandescent one. Hopefully it won’t get too hot and crack, it should be thin enough to expand/contract safely without splitting but only time will tell.

Really nice, I like. If you feel it is getting too hot from the bulb, try an LED light.

That’s a beauty and I would get a LED bulb in there ASAP before the shade cracks .

Really nice!
Does the light shine through the shade when turned on?

If the CFL get too hot you can always go to LED!
I have a 60W LED in a metal shaded lamp similar to your shade and it barely goes over ambient room temperature.

The shade glows but it doesn’t shine through as much as I’d like. I plan to make another one that a bit thinner.

Really nice idea. My wife has a really ugly desk lamp that I may try something like this with.
