In creating the nucleus of a new collection, Fine Art Lamps designer Mark McDowell envisaged distinctly individual designs that communicate with each other in intimate harmony, the essence of a liaison. Each piece is unique in time and space, executed in hand-crafted metal with extensive component details and articulation, finished in a choice of antique hand-rubbed bronze or platinized silver leaf. The glass shades are hand-blown with random glass overlay hand worked by Fine Art Lamps glass artisans in clear glass with a partial, graduated satin frosting on lower portion that softens the effect of the candelabra based incandescent bulbs.
