The 18" Dragonfly lamp

This is a special ordered and designed lamp.
It´s a smaler version of the well known
22" Dragonfly design made by
Tiffany Studios New York

We have crated this design one on a wooden
lamp mold. A 4" upper aperture ring will be used
instead of the 5 " one, which normally is installed
in Tiffany´s 22" Dragonfly lamp.

It`s the very first lamp we create on this new mold.


This mold is rather heavy. We will manage to do
the lamp on it because we do not need a "positioner"
for soldering. We fix the mold hanging on a simple
chain while soldering.

It is placed on one of our light tables.
The dark areas are covered by black paper.

I have separated most of the glass pieces for
the background here. This picture has been taken
from my glass-selecting-light-table this afternoon
