This Fumed Art Glass table lamp with an Opal Feather design is hand blown to order by renowned glass artisan Carl Radke. Carl Radke has been blowing glass since 1970 and is one of only a few glassblowers out of thousands in the United States who continues to work in this difficult and traditional glass. Carl must be a chemist as well as a craftsman to work successfully in this medium.
This table lamp is perfect for that desk, side table or night stand and is signed and dated by Radke to assure authenticity and to retain its future collector value. The Opal Feather design fits perfectly with the domed shape shade and slender base and will certainly become a cherished family heirloom.
Each lamp is wired with a single socket in the top shade and is supplied with an LED lamp. All of the solid brass hardware is finished in a warm bronze finish.
Fumed Art Glass is a very specialized glassblowing medium. Because of the silver and gold content in the glass, it has always been one of the most costly forms of glass ever produced. In addition to the high cost of the raw materials used in Fumed Glass, other factors prevent this volatile studio glass from being mass produced in a large factory environment.
