"Gaudi" - Fused Glass Panels For Wall Lantern

I believe that one can never have too much art, and that art can be worked into anything!

One day I was watering my plants and happened to look at the wall lantern outside my front door; I thought "I can jazz that up"....

One of my favorite artists is Antoni Gaudi - my design is "after his style" of wildly organic line and beautiful mosaic work. Onto a vanilla base of opaque glass I carefully positioned the multitude of SMALL colored glass pieces... the design flows from panel to panel (all six of them) to create a single composition.

While this was a very labor-intensive project, I "want what I want" and not afraid of doing the work necessary to achieve it.

After the glass was completed via fusing, I sandblasted the original brass plating from the metal fixture housing, replacing it with a "metal coating" and several different colors of patina to make it even more fun!

I can make either new glass panels for your existing fixture (less expensive) of re-do your fixture as I did mine. The price would be dependent on the complexity of the glass design, and whether additional work would be required for the fixture itself.

While this fixture uses fused glass panels, there is some very lovely multi-colored art glass that could be cut and installed "as is"; I would just need an existing panel to work from for measurements (they are very easy to remove).
