At the End of the Day...
A Venitian technique we are accustomed to seeing employed on a significantly smaller scale, 'end of the day' glass is usually seen as an ashtray or bowl. A excellent example of early recycling, this design process collects left-over shards of glass from the workday's production and quite literally melds them together, creating a terrazzo effect. Monumental in size, and obviously quite heavy, this lamp stands as a testament to the 'end of the day' technique and is an impressive 41" tall. Closer inspection reveals the treasure trove of hidden gems in its make-up.
