Stained glass lamp shade - a work in progress
Here's a stained glass lamp shade that I designed an am currently working on. I was inspired by our trip to New Orleans last February. Fleur de lis everywhere! Although it's meaning or use is much debated, I like to think of it as as a symbol of perfection, light and life - a definition I found through research. Since I started working on it down at Vijon Studios in Old Saybrook, away from the distractions of home, I've finally gotten most of the pieces together. A bunch of soldering to do and I'm going to make a "window" along the bottom. I'll post another photos when I'm done!
