The Lone Star Flag shines bright with this true to proportion replica in glass. Each of the four sides is a glass panel of the state flag hanging vertically. People will have no doubt you’re from Texas when they see the light proudly hanging in your home or office.
The glass panels are 5” wide x 9 ½” tall. The panels are attached to a 4” diameter bracket and the bracket is hidden with a dark blue band at the top of each glass panel. The bracket attaches to a light fixture.
Please be sure to look at all the photos to see details of the panels and bracket.
Please allow three weeks for the artisan to handcraft the Pendant Light.
About the Texas Artisan and the Fused Glass Process
The lamp is handmade by a Texas artisan who loves working with glass. When he discovered the fused glass or kiln-glass process he knew it was the medium for him. The technique requires technical skill, precise planning and artistic expression to get the desired result.
Fused glass uses the high temperatures of a kiln to heat the glass until it softens and fully fuses to a flat piece. The piece is then placed in a mold and reheated until it takes the shape of the mold.
Fused glass is different from blown glass in that glass is heated in a kiln and the high temperatures soften the glass and fuse together. Blown glass inflates molten glass into a bubble with the aid of a blowpipe.
Each hand made item is slightly different and may have very slight variations. The slight differences are controlled by the artist and add to the beauty of the finished piece.
