GLASS LAMPS – BY ELLIN CURLEY

I love glass and almost anything made from glass. So it’s no surprise that over the years, I’ve bought and inherited a number of glass lamps and chandeliers.

Here is my collection.

    1. I went on a mid century modern kick when I was redecorting the house a few years ago! I found a terrific store that specialized in mid century modern and I bought up the store. I got a lot of my paperweights and glass bowls and vases there too.

    1. Thank you! Most people love glass. It’s so versatile. You can make so many different things with it and use so many different techniques.

    1. The Tiffany style glass shades were my mother’s and are quite old. The green ones were made in a factory down the street from the Tiffany company and used the Tiffany techniques and styles. So they are of the period but not nmade at the Tiffany plant.

  1. Wow, beautiful! I also love glass but am partial to Cobalt. I feel so lucky to live in Chihuly country.

    And this may seem like an unrelated topic but one of the last things on my Bucket List is a long beach combing session at Glass Beach in Northern California.

    1. I am partial to sea glass in jewelry. I also used sea glass in a mobile in my kitchen and sea glass is embedded in my kitchen table. So you can combine beautiful glass and the ocean.
