Making a Honeycomb Bee Lantern in stained glass

Project Ideas Stained Glass

Did you know that original Louis Comfort Tiffany copper-foil lamps were made with beeswax rather than adhesive? 
We're making the best of the pandemic by making new and amazing art. Here's Ryan in the early stages of his bee-themed copper foil lamp.
From 2D to 3D, as easy as that! Ryan is demonstrating a trick for working with 3D glass - Hold it together with tape before the final transformation to a lamp! 
Much easier than growing that extra arm that we all wish we had. Ryan installed a vintage style light bulb. We could not “bee” more thrilled with how our honeycomb lamp turned out!
