Each masterpiece, a resplendent confection of Tffany stained glass, is handmade and meticulously fashioned by skilled craftsman. Conforming to tradition, the individual pieces of glass that comprise a Tiffany shade are cut out from large sheets of genuine hand-rolled art glass as according to desired patterns. The edges are then ground smooth, copper foiled, and proficiently soldered together on a mould, creating a detailed glass mosaic that gives the shade its indivdual shape. The completed shade is subsequently washed and a finishing patina is applied to accentuate the details. Insisting on the highest standards of quality and workmanship, every piece is inspected on a light box to ensure brilliance of color, pattern, continuity, and structural integrity. Due to its handcrafted nature, countless hours of intensive manual labour come together in the manufacture of a single Tiffany shade, which, depending on its complexity, can incorporate hundreds or even thousands of individual stained glass pieces. Exquisite in design and intricacy, each Tiffany shade painstakingly produced from this centuries old artisanal process will be an unique and one-of-a-kind treasured keepsake for years to come.

F A Q
When I tap on the shade, it doesn't sound like glass. What material are your shades made of?
Our shades are made of genuine handcrafted stained glass. When a sheet of glass is flat and uncut, it has a "ting" sound when tapped, however once the glass is cut into many small pieces, copper foiled and soldered together, the properties of the glass changes and the vibration given off is dampened. The resultant sound becomes more of a "thud" which most people interpret as an indication of it being made of plastic, when actually glass was used.
Why are there bubbles and variations in colour, translucency, texture, and thickness of the glass. Are these imperfections manufacturing defects or flaws?
No, these are typical characteristics of genuine handcrafted stained glass and should not be considered flaws or mistaken for defects. Each panel of handcrafted stained glass is unique and can not be exactly replicated.
Can I view this item at your warehouse prior to bidding/purchase?
