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.

  3. 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.

    Not your gorgeous lamps but maybe they once were!

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.
