The 20″ Azalea has several unique features which give the shade a unique personality.The unusual modified turban shape enhances the look of a plant growing upwards, spreading its flowering branches towards the sun in springtime.
The open flowers are enhanced with beads of sculpted solder representing the flower centers. The added solder gives the shade a lively three dimensional quality.
With abundant leaves, buds, and flowers covering the shade in a dense tangle, the overall effect of this pattern is lush. The background shifts from green mixed with blue at the top down to celadon green at the bottom. The flowers are rendered in striated and mottled gold pink glass mixed with whites. The shade was commissioned by a client in North Carolina. It is shown on the Grooved base (26″ tall).
