Finished Crash Lamp

The crash glass lamp is finished.  Painted dictionary paper and cultered pearls were used to create the cherry blossoms.  The 1/8" crash did not hold together very well; so, it took a long time to get the lamp finished.  I would recommend it for smaller projects but I probaly won't use it again for bigger projects.


  1. Love the look of the cultured pearls. Why did the 1/8 crash not work to well? Was the glass too thick and heavy? It is a beautiful lamp. Will it be at Harmony for display? If so I will be by to see it.

  2. Hi Irene,

    The 1/8 inch glass did not hold together very well and broke into teeny-tiny pieces. There were a few large "chunks" but most of it was small - real small. I am going to take it to Harmony and leave it there for a few weeks. Joyce has some of these lamp forms for sale if you want to give it a try.
