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.

    This was the first time I used CustomMade, and I was very pleased with the results of my project. I had a pair of broken slumped glass lampshades that I wanted to recreate. David provided a detailed description of the process he would use to create new lampshades for me and an approximate timeframe. He communicated with me each step of the way and provided pictures of how my lampshades were progressing. When he hit a snag, he let me know how he was going to address it, always communicating along the way. The result was a beautiful pair of lampshades that were nearly identical to the original broken ones. I greatly appreciate his talent and his willingness to go the extra mile to ensure the project met my expections. If you're looking for an experienced artist to complete a quality project for you, I highly recommend David.

    When I broke my glass lampshade I was devastated. Glad it was me but not my grandchildren. Did not think this design could ever be replaced. Mr. Zvanut was able to melt it and recreate-he is a true artist. The project was swift and thorough. I received regular communication and pictures along the way. I would highly recommend him for any glass projects. Thank you David!

    We are delighted with the two custom glass slumped shades that David made us. They were to replace two that were broken and look wonderful.
    David was easy to work with and communicated every step of the process providing photos and updated information.
    All in all it was a positive experience. Thank you for our lovely shades!
