When ordering a reproduction Tiffany Lamp from Keiichi Yamamoto it is important to communicate about a desired lamp or custom panel by phone and/or email to start the process and continuing throughout the development.
Keiichi handcrafts elegant masterpieces inspired by Tiffany Studios. He uses the original working methods and artistry of combining the meticulous handcrafting of the finest glass available with precise metal work.
Photos are taken at different stages of creation and shared with the client. Individually cut pieces are assembled in a layout and presented on a light table so the eventual design and vision can be realized. Each piece of glass is cut from patterns taken from original Tiffany lamps created by Louis Comfort Tiffany's Studio in the early 1900's. They vary from simple geometric patterns to the sizable glorious 28-inch floral masterpieces. Glass is fitted on a mold to get the shape and then each piece is wrapped in thin copper foil and placed back on the mold. After all the pieces are copper foiled, it is all soldered together, with a heavy rim soldered to the bottom and reinforcement wire is added to the bigger shades for more support. After the shade has been soldered, it gets professionally plated and brought back to the studio for the patina process. When the shade gets a green-brown patina, it must be buffed and polished before being taken to the packer for shipping.
There is no set price and each lamp is quoted on a per order basis of what the desires and requests are of the customer. You can have your very own masterpiece of glass and share it with generations as it will always maintain a high value.
