The 12″ Zodiac is a Century Studios original shade design that we introduced last fall. The shade has a Celtic motif of intertwining border rows that divide the shade into quadrants, each of which has a large round turtleback tile. The surface of the shade is also studded with three dimensional glass jewels.
Textured glass features prominently in this example. A heavily rippled orange/amber glass was chosen for the main border rows. Secondary border rows in a light green surround insets of heavily rippled yellow glass. The combination of textures and jewels results in a shade that is difficult not to want to touch and run your hands over when seen in person. Shown on the elegant Torpedo base, this lamp is now in a private local collection.
