First, I am a stained glass artist and lamp designer with 15+ years of experience working on Tiffany reproduction lamps using the Odyssey system. I am always open to learn the methods used by other artists and was eager to see what this book had to offer.

On the PLUS side, the photography is pretty good giving many images of completed and in-process lamps. However, many of the images are over-exposed which highlights the color but washes out the details (like patina color, solder work, etc.). Unfortunately, in many cases these details are exactly what the aspiring lamp artist needs to see to help perfect their artwork.

Unfortunately, there are more issues on the NEGATIVE side. First, the steps outlined and described for completion of the 22 in. Elaborate Peony will NOT complete the shade, not to mention a museum-quality shade. There's not even close-up images given of the completed shade! Why do we need an entire chapter on grouting the mold? This is the most simplest step in the process with no bearing on creating museum-quality artwork. There is basically NO MENTION OF SOLDERING TECHNIQUE nor even a listing in the steps for doing beading work. No quite sure how this could be missed, since it simply is one of the most important steps in the process! Lots of detailed images about initial tack soldering of the shade, releasing it from the mold, installing the rim wire & reinforcing, but then the text jumps right to patina finish. What gives? Personally, I believe there should be an entire chapter on beading work with lots of detailed images of what the author believes is an acceptable finish. I think most lamp artists would greatly benefit by seeing the level of soldering expertise that would warrant a museum-quality piece. Skipping it all is just not right.

Haven't had much time to devote to it with the holidays, but we are planning to build some lamps soon.

Hugh Archer provides a detailed illustrated route to recreating accurate replicas of classic Tiffany lamps, and to the materials, techniques and equipment that facilitates that outcome. Not perhaps for novices to glasswork seeking only to make a (sort-of) 'Tiffany', but an authoritative guide to those able to tackle the demanding intricacy of the classic lamps.
