This is a lantern I just finished that has Prairie, Arts & Crafts, FLW influences. The wood is
Vermont tiger maple and Mahogany. It’s almost 14” tall and 7” square. The roof reminds me
of sugar houses up here that have openings to let the steam out. And tall and thin like the
dairy farm silos.

An artist influenced by his surroundings… WOW, yet another excellent piece!

Is this for your personal use, or someone else?

I like the background info. you gave us on where a bit of the influence came from.

Thanks for sharing this one.

Wow! What a beautiful piece. I love the style of the piece and the choice of glass type and color in the stained glass work. Very well done! Thanks for sharing.

That is very cool. Does the top just rest on there, or is it attached?

I love it. I like the look of stained glass paired with wood and how it gives the room character. Bravo~!
