Handmade by Tamara Goldsmith, these Ziggy Stardust-inspired "Bowie Bolts" are the quintessential emblem of 70's glam-punk.  Designed, hand-cut, copper-foiled, handpainted and assembled using a traditional Tiffany method in her Portland, Oregon studio, Tamara designed the piece using a variety of tones of red and blue glasses.  Some are iridescent, some textured, some wispy or opaque. The lightening bolt measures about 6" tall and 4" wide. It hangs from a blackened chain about 6 inches from the top.


Stained Glass, a technique relatively unchanged for hundreds of years, is the ancient art of assembling cut, mineral-infused, handmade art glass together with lead/tin seams. This piece has also been painted with additional details on the front only. 60/40 lead/tin solder was used and the border is lead came.  

Lead is not dangerous to have in your home in an art-piece like this unless sanded, causing lead-dust to be airborne and inhaled or somehow ingested. However, it is always a good idea to wash your hands well after cleaning or handling the piece.

The piece will be carefully wrapped to prevent breakage during domestic shipping.
