Lampshade Commission

Lampshade Commission

Adam Aaronson Glass Studio was recently approached with a commission to replace some lampshades on a 1960s light fitting. Our clients, who live in one of the charming Surrey villages a few miles to the east of our glassblowing studio in West Horsley, had visited us during one of our events during SAOS – Surrey Artists Open Studios. They particularly liked the style of Adam’s “Fresco” vases and came back to see whether it would be possible for Adam to design some replacement shades in bright colours to reflect that body of work. As usual, Adam rose to the challenge and he was very pleased with the results as were the clients.

A few days after our clients took delivery, they very kindly sent us this image showing how they look, now that they have been attached to the light fitting. We can understand why they were so pleased with the results. We do a great deal of bespoke work on commission at Adam Aaronson Glass Studio, but on most occasions we don’t actually get a chance to see how it turns out, so this image was doubly welcome.
