kanju sources colored glass bottles from the areas surrounding our studios in southern Africa to use in our Tumbled Glass Lampshades. Bottles are chipped to size and turned for two days in a homemade tumbler filled with local lake water and sand to soften edges and achieve a frosted finish. Strands of glass are connected by either steel or copper wire and hang from two concentric steel hoops.
Tumbled Glass Lampshade are available in large and small sizes and standard coloring of clear and aqua glass jewels.
Tumbled Glass Lampshade are made-to-order, however please contact kanju to modify dimensions to suit your space. We also accept full custom commissions using the materials and techniques employed in our Tumbled Glass Collection. A design professional will work with you to create a design to suit a niche space or achieve a specific effect and bring your vision to life.
