Techniques > Copper foil technique (Tiffany)

 

The lamps featured on this site are unique objects. They have all be created using the so-called Tiffany technique. This process involves cutting and grinding the pieces of glass, wrapping the edges in copper and then soldering the joints using a lead/tin solder.

The lamps are freestanding, supported by a centre point or resting on the lower edge. Sheets of stained or fused glass are hand blown or manufactured mechanically. Their transparency varies depending on the requirements and effects desired.

The lampshades can be mounted on old, recent or tailor-made bases.
