A unique art-glass table lamp inspired by the artist's many walks
though Armstrong Woods Park in Guerneville, California.
The image of the forest disappearing in the early
morning fog is created by a technique
known as "glass layering."
The entire case is crafted from local redwood, and the base of the lamp is from
a large slice of a redwood burl. The redwood posts seem to rise out
of the rustic base, softening the contrast between the natural burl
and the finely-finished case. Case detail shown below.
A bit of trivia: All of the redwood used in this lamp (excluding the
burl base, of course) came from a two-foot-long piece
of an old redwood 2 x 4. The fine, clear grain
is not often found in today's

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.
