Lamps and Art of Stained Glass and Fine Woods Sonoma County Stained Glass and Exotic Woods by Skip Thomsen

17" high

This art-glass and wood table lamp was inspired by the many koi ponds
one sees in Hawai'i. The inspiration for the Hawaiian Curly Koa frame design
was the Japanese gates in Hilo's beautiful and serene Lili'uokalani Park.
The almost black wood trim is African Wenge, chosen
for the framatic contrast to the brilliant Koa.

Shown below is a detail shot typical of the intricate woodworking throughout this piece.
All of the lamps in this series have the electric cord coming out of the bottom
of the lamp in such a way that it can be moved to whatever side of the lamp
ends up in back where it will not show. As with all of the lamps in this series,
the light is provided by compact fluorescent bulbs.
These works are designed and created by Skip Thomsen of Forestville, California
The design and execution of each of these pieces is unique and
will never be reproduced. All original designs and patterns for
the glass and the cases are destroyed after the piece is completed.
