Slumped Glass Lampshades

A client needed three slumped glass lampshades to replace some original lampshades that were damaged in an earthquake. The shades needed to fit an original wrought iron lamp and bulb, and be an amber color. I fused amber glass to clear to make a thicker sheet, then slumped the sheets in stages over first a metal form bent to about 80 degrees, then over a ceramic form bent to almost 180 degrees.

    David was great with our project. His attention to detail and and pictures along the way was great. We had a complicated measurement with a swelling for the light bulb and not just a flat piece of glass being bent. He was responsive with an adjustment of one of the 3 shades did not have the same shading. I would highly recommend him for future ventures. My only problem was with the Marketplace site that was not good for my sending pictures back to him. I would love to send a picture back of the finished lamp but it won't let me post. David rescued my tragic accident breaking my modern custom lamp . He is my hero.

    We were so impressed with the first slumped glass shade, we ordered another in a different color. It's as beautiful as the first one. Thanks David!

    David is amazing to work with. I contacted him about creating a custom piece of art for me. He listened to exactly what I wanted and communicated with me quickly and frequently. I really appreciate him taking my ideas into consideration and giving me exactly what I wanted! I will definitely work with David again in the future and recommend that you do too.

    David is a true artist. He was prompt, communicated well, and our new slumped glass lampshade is more beautiful than the original. Dare I say, I'm glad the dog broke the first one. Thanks again David.
