Peacock Lamp Lights Up Our Blog

Events and Contests

Choosing a winner for the Light Up Our Blog contest was virtually impossible. With more than 30 unbelievable entries, how could we choose just one? Ultimately this peacock gem stole our hearts. Daisy C. from Tucker, GA will receive a Flower Power premium glass pack from Uroboros. You can read her story below.

We'll be featuring many other entries on our blog and in our catalogs in the future, so check back frequently and thanks to everyone who entered the contest! View other entries on Facebook or view a slideshow of entries.

I am Daisy Comer. I leave in Tucker, GA. I have been working with Stained Glass for about 10 yrs. I started with class at Colonial Stained Glass in Marietta, GA. Donna and Susan taught me well.

My shop is in my sunroom on the back of my townhouse. It is a nice setting and I love working out there. My cat Boo allows me to use a portion of his space (because from day one he made sure that the sunroom was his.)

Now about my lamp. It started with a class that Susan started in November. I selected the Peacock design because it was so unique. This pattern had 200 pieces. I used the Worden Lamp System. This system included the pattern, form, cap and the glass pack. As the picture shows, the glass pack was awesome. The cost for supplies was only $50 not including the lamp base. When you first start, you get overwhelmed with all the pieces and how small some of them are. It took me time to get everything organized to make things easier. One thing that helped was setting my glass grinder right at my workstation. Then the process went smoothly. There were times that nothing was working, so I would take a break and come back later.

When all was finished I just love it. Now I am going to give this lamp to my grand niece Madeleine for Christmas.

I hope you like my lamp. You can see more of my pieces on my website.

This is beautiful! I have seen this pattern before and thought about doing it and now I know I will. I hope it will turn out as well as yours did.
