This is a handmade fused glass mushroom lamp, modeled after the mushroom Amanita muscaria.

The design

I started out by cutting circles out of 2 sheets of glass for the circular top – a ‘mushroom color’ for the underside and deep ruby red for the top. The red top is shiny and smooth. The top has ivory glass pieces, similar to the real version of this mushroom that were left softly raised.

The stem

The stem is a recycled bottle that I cut, ground and polished, sandblasted, then annealed in my kiln for added durability. Finally, I added a light glaze for easy cleaning (damp cloth) and to reduce fingerprints on the sandblasted surface.

The light

This lamp comes with a compact LED nightlight-sized lamp that fits inside of the stem. This mushroom has a long neck. The light fits midway up the neck.

If you prefer to place this mushroom in a garden space or have a lamp of your own that you would prefer to use, you can select the ‘no light’ option to receive the mushroom only.

Additional details

This mushroom is one piece. The top and stem have been bonded with clear silicone. To learn more about the creation of glass mushrooms, please see this blog post – behind the handmade scenes.
