Erik Hoglund lamp

I like the lamp but its not the best illuminator! I tried a bulb in it, too much metal surrounding it to work well with the dark orange glass.
Ive just found examples of the glass panels, they were being sold as individual paperweights (both in blue and white).

Hi,
 I knew a little about Hoglund when i bought it, though had nothing by him. I was looking at a small pendant of his when the dealer brought the lamp out of a box. I just hoped the lamp would work better as a functional item. But the glass looks far more impressive out of the lamp.

This is one of the sites with the clear glass weight . http://www.justglassmall.com/stores/digartwerks/items/262916/item262916justglass.html
The blue one can be seen on a Google image search for Erik Hoglund. I cant find the best site , forgot to save it as a favourite.
David.

Ive just found another with my panel exactly. Lots of other great pieces by him too.

The paperweights are quite common.  The lamp isn't.

Whatever you do, don't be tempted to break up the lamp for the glass!  :lol:

I think the point of these lamps is that they're only supposed to light up the glass, rather than the space around around them, with some effectiveness as a downlighter. It would be displayed best hung at eye-level over a sideboard or small dining table.  :) You can buy elongated bulbs from specialist lighting shops which would probably better show off the glass via back-lighting.

Fantastic find - I wish I had one... or two!
