I've been making unique bent panel mica shades since 2004.  Gradually working in standard shapes for your

antique and vintage table and floor lamps. My shades can be found in institutions and archival facilities

across America. I sign each shade.

It is my pleasure to make my shades for you.

To the left are samples of the mica I work with. From top left going clockwise are: Light Amber, Dark Amber, 

Silver, and Natural Amber with random black strata flecks.

Mica is a rock. Peeled into flakes, it is then rolled into shellac (Ambers) or synthetic base (Silver) and made

into large sheets. I then work it into lamp shades for your enjoyment  :o)


Several years of creating my shades for folks all over America from all economic levels. It's just a joy  :o)


Majolica Mica Shade

July 28, 2017

Hi Nan.  I received the lamp shade today and wanted you to know how thrilled I am with it.  I have a deco floor lamp that has green mercury glass inserts and I have never been able to find a shade that looks good on it until now.  Your shade looks like it was made specifically for the lamp.  Thanks so much for the quick shipping - you're a true artist!  I'm including some pictures so you can see how beautiful the lamp looks with your shade.
Thanks again,

"Absolutely beautiful! We love it! It looks like it was made specifically for our antique bridge lamp. Arrived much sooner that expected."

" Beautifully crafted. The design of the shade brings to life my Art Deco wrought iron floor lamp. Kudos to the artist. I will be ordering another mica shade for another1920s wrought iron floor lamp I own. Highly recommend!
