Dafodil Shade for Garden Variety

Since 2005, Martina and I have lived in the log-house on the grounds of Stenton Museum in Northwest Philadelphia.  Thanks to the beautiful spring weather and our volunteer gardener, Jean, I am inspired to create “Garden Variety”.  A series of lamps in the spirit of the gardens just outside my front door.

I’ve been walking through the gardens at Stenton collecting flowers and photographing arrangements on a piece of black fur in my Germantown studio. Here is the first sample layout.

This winter, I came upon some books about the work of Louis Comfort Tiffany.  Until then, I never knew too much about Tiffany or how he worked.  Honestly, I just thought there were a bunch of over reproduced lamps.  I will share more as I go along.
