LAMPSHADE-MAKING Stuff

Among the most popular objects made of stained glass are stained glass lampshades. No other lampshades have the beauty and appearance of stained glass. They are ideal projects for the home craftsman. You will enjoy seeing your stained glass lampshade taking shape and becoming a valuable piece of hand crafted art.

The projects included in this section are meant to be built using the copper foil method of construction, so it would be of great help if, in addition to the common tools, you had the use of a glass grinder and a foil wrapper. The largest part of this section lists our own copyrighted Lampshade Construction System, which offers 172 different patterns, some of which are adaptations from original Tiffany Studio Lampshades. See the lamp hardware section on this site for electrical hardware and lamp bases.
