With snowstorms traveling through Minnesota on almost a daily basis, it is nice to be reminded that spring will be with us shortly…well, by June at any rate! The 16″ Tulip shade reminds us that warm sunny days are coming.
The flowers for this shade were created in a variety of red tones, some streaked with yellow, others tinged with pink and purple. Muted greens were chosen for the abundant foliage, and a light fracture/streamer glass was used for the sky at the top. The pale green borders and light earth tone used for the ground keeps the shade from looking heavy. Created in 2002 and now in a private collection, the shade is shown on the sculptural Mockturtle base (21.5″ tall).
