My aunt made this for us a few months ago. I thought TC folks might like to look at it. She is so talented. It is incredibly special when someone makes something this cool for you.

Hi. Here is what my aunt said about how long it took her to do the lamp:

"It's hard to keep track of time on something like this, especially the first one (research, drawing, revisions, etc.). With the pattern taken care of, say 2 eight-hour days."

Your Aunt needs to become a TC member, or is she already?

That tiki lamp is awesome, but what's with the Battlestar Galactica Cylon head?

Hi. I have told my aunt a few times that she should make more because everyone that has come to our house so far thinks it is super cool. If she does I will let TC folks know.

The Battlestar Galactica Head is the orginal series on DVD in a Cylon head box.

I love it! Let me know if she ever puts one on eBay. I love seeing tiki created in all kinds of media. You are so lucky!

Hello and thanks for all the compliments on the Tiki lamp I made for my niece. Stained glass can get very stilted and sterile ("That color doesn't go with my carpet" or "I want a window just like my neighbors'"), so it's nice to have fun with it after doing it for a living since 1980. Populuxe and SciFi styles are a couple of things I've always wanted to try in glass. I did a 'Mambo Cat' design adapted from an old album cover that came out really neat. More designs are on the board, so I'll let you know when they go to auction. Thanks for the encouragement!
