Ancient Techniques

Popular gifts for weddings...

Since ancient times, stained glass custom or not, has been famous for its ability to create a magic atmosphere: when light shines through glass, the room fills with iridescent glares transforming the space beyond recognition. In the case of stained glass windows the sun light is responsible for its makeover, but when it comes to stained glass lamps - a light bulb changes the appearance of the lamp. When the light is turned off the lamp seems to have discreet and muffled colour, but when the light is turned on it can throw rainbows of magical vibrations into a living space, in a word - absolutely adorable. The light makes glass sparkle with vibrant colours and fills a room with admirable balance and warmth.

Fairy Lamp Collection

We all have a story to tell....

My inspiration for creating these fairy glass lamps came from a drive through a rural area of Co.Tipperary one year during a bad storm, there were a lot of trees lying in fields everywhere, due to the heavy winds. Tree damage during a storm is usually considered a “natural” event, but I felt a duty to do something so I contacted a well known local wood carver in the town of Fethard, and that is where the story began of the Fairy Lamp collection. It was my way of bringing the ancient fallen trees back to life, in the form of unique glass lamps with organic wooden shapes.

“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”
