When I look up at a chandelier lamp I begin to wonder a lot of things. More inquisitive than the regular Joe, I look at things and assess them the same way I do with people I meet. And I love hearing accounts of people’s lives and how things came to be. Oh, what stories the people who made them can tell us. There is no better example than a chandelier lamp. Under it a chandelier lamp looks so unreachable. A thing of beauty surrounded by a mist of mystery is so high above the ceiling that there is no other choice but to just look at it and admire it from below. The beauty of a chandelier lamp make you want to touch it hoping to hold the light in the palm of your hand. Oh, if only you could.
Geometric Tiffany lamps were designed using glass cut into basic shapes such as squares, triangles, diamonds, and rectangles and used only one or two colors. The geometric designs included the Lotus Leaf, Acorn, Spider web, Parasol, Nautilus Seashell, Indian Basket and Turtleback designs. These designs are very symmetrical and were some of Tiffany’s first work. Although a symmetrical design may seem a little boring, Tiffany’s use of color and shapes made the lamps come alive.
