The 20″ Azalea has modified turban shape that is densely covered with intertwining branches, leaves and flowers. The open flowers are enhanced with beads of sculpted solder representing the flower centers, giving the shade a lively three dimensional quality.
Abundant leaves, buds, and flowers cover the shade in a dense tangle, the overall effect of this pattern is lush. For this example, 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).
