Lamps and Art of Stained Glass and Fine Woods Sonoma County Stained Glass and Exotic Woods by Skip Thomsen
 
These lamps are a true labor of love. I create them because I love the process:
First, the design of the glass, then the design of the case to compliment the glass.
Many of the cases have fifty or more individually crafted pieces, each made to
precisely fit into the whole. Even the wiring takes special design work, in that
the wires have to be invisible in the finished project. I use some rare and
exotic woods, and all of my glass is carefully hand-picked for each
design. Even the color-temperature of the lighting is specific
to each lamp. Each design is unique and the patterns
are discarded when the project is complete.
