I'm so overwhelmed with pictures right now, I don't know whether to just plow through editing them or just touch up a few and get them posted. I usually take the plow through approach, which almost always takes much longer than I expect and then, I don't get anything posted at all. So, before this is completely stale "news", I thought I'd get these up.
Last Sunday, Aaron and I went to an exhibit at the Nassau County Art Museum which featured Louis Comfort Tiffany lamps. We've all seen the faux ones, and I know I've only seen a real one before because Aaron's brother collects them. But what a spectacle to see so many in one place. The room was very dimly lit, and I don't think I fully appreciated the intensity of color in these works of art prior to seeing them illuminated. Most of the lamps we saw had a nature theme and I was very interested in how the florals were pieced together. I could see working it into a quilt applique. Is it ok to rip off Tiffany? I think if I refer to the pieces as my "inspiration" or "muse", I can get away with it.
Anyway, I took photos of all of them (it was allowed) and I wanted to show a small example. Can you imagine one in your living room?
this pattern below is one that I would LOVE to do in fabric...
I really loved this piece. Totally impractical...but I have the perfect place for it!
