Lily Pad Complete

The lily pads surrounding the base of the lamp gave me the idea for the name.  Sea glass colors of teal, gold and very dark green compliment the antique base.  For Sale at Island Collection in New Smyrna Beach

Asymmetrical Shade with Teak Root

Next lamp in the works has a very unique teak root for which it needed a special designed shade.  So I chose to make an asymmetrical shade to compliment the root.  The shade will be made out of four panels.  Here are photos of the prototype shade and the first panel made.
