THE MADISON LAMP
This lamp was designed in the late 1990's for the guest rooms in the new SNOW LODGE in YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK at OLD FAITHFUL. The base is of inlaid maple and the shade is fret cut copper with mica diffuser and maple corners. I wanted to reflect the past while illustrating the romance of the park. The studio produced about 110 of these fixtures. Cutting the copper shade panels was a real challenge that left accomplished craftsmen throwing in the towel.
This is the first of sveral fixtures that were designed for the lodge, more fixtures will be posted later.
