I made this light after searching for them and finding that they cost hundreds of dollars. My lamp was made from poplar scraps dyed walnut with art glass panels. The glass was my most expensive item at $35. I used a fluorescent lamp to avoid issues with the heat from incandescent lamps. It’s about 16” high and 5” square.

Nice looking light, I’ve seen similar hanging from mailboxes in my neighborhood.

As you can see it doesn’t throw a lot light. My wiife uses it as a mood/night light.

Very nice style! I like your material selections from the stain color, to the shade glass.

Well done!

Where did you buy the art glass?

I got the art glass from Delphi art glass. They have an incredible amount of glass to choose from. My glass is opaque because I wanted light to come through but obscure the light source.

Great, thanks. We have some pendant lights with the same glass, this will accent nicely in a piece I’m working on.

Have your say...
