'California Poppies'


This is my Greene and Greene inspired stained glass chandelier. The design is an adaptation of the original by PDQ Designs. My chandelier was made specifically for a dining room in a early 1920's Seattle bungalow. Stained glass panels were constructed in the 'Tiffany' copper foil method featuring glass from Spectrum (background), Uroboros (flower petals) and Wissmach (flower buds). The stained glass panels also include copper foil overlay. The wooden casework and mounting plates were constructed from white quartersawn oak with ebony square pins with blind mortise and tenon joinery, chestnut stain and polyurethane finish. The chandelier is hung with leather bridle straps with standard cabinet pulls. I fashioned the electrical lighting from a 1" diameter copper pipe and purchased the 'bungalow period' solid spun brass sockets and cloth covered wiring from Sundial Wiring.
