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.
The lamp consists of a standard bulb when turned on heats the tall transparent bottle containing small amount water and a mixture of wax. Although other things can also be added such as carbon tetrachloride but the standard lava lamp must have water and wax in the transparent bottle. The wax is not that thick but a little dense as compared with water at room temperature but gets even less dense under warm temperatures as it is more expandable and elastic than water when heated together.
If you have used a patterned fabric or paper you will probably not need much in the way of decoration although you might like to add a braid trim around the edges in a coordinating color. If you have made a plain shade however you can really go to town adding beads, sequins, fringing and the like. Your glue gun will come in handy once again for attaching anything you desire to your shade. Use your imagination and create something very special and unique but remember that you will have to replicate the process for each individual shade so make sure you don’t run out of trimmings.
In its simplest explanation, a Tiffany lamp is known best for its glass lamp shade of many colors and designs. Although Tiffany table and floor lamp bases sometimes have its own intricate designs, it is best known by the glass shades that adorn the light. The Tiffany lamp name comes from its inventor, Louis Comfort Tiffany, who produced Tiffany lamps from the late 1880’s until 1930. Tiffany made the lamps by soldering pieces of cut, colored glass that he had left over from stained glass windows he had made years earlier. He cut various types and colors of glass according to a pattern that he designed.
