Everything about this purchase exceeded my expectations! Catherine is a great communicator - kept me informed during the process from making the lamp to shipping it. The lamp arrived in perfect condition and well wrapped. She is also an incredibly talented artist and it feels very special to own this piece of art. Highly recommend! Thanks, Catherine!

My lamp looks just like it was pictured. It arrived very well packaged with instructions for cleaning. I needed to contact the seller again as I couldn't find my original message to her regarding the type of U.S. bulb I needed to get for it. Catherine responded very promptly. It looks beautiful on the table in my entryway!

Catherine Vidal is the creator of "Bijoux d'Intérieur", this is how she describes the Stained Glass Windows she creates and shapes.
Several trainings with different workshops were the trigger for the decision to found his own workshop in 2009 in Bonrepos sur Aussonnelle in Haute-Garonne (France). She also trained in ironwork and cabinetmaking in order to develop her art through modern and innovative projects, while retaining the centuries-old know-how of stained glass.
She uses her art and technique to share the beauty of glass and stained glass.
Each work is made in a numbered copy, the diversity of the glasses used, their specificity, their particularity and their random coloring guarantee "THE" unique piece whose finish is carried out with particular care and unparalleled precision.
In an era of increasing standardization of materials and techniques, stained glass is the object of customization of an interior. It adds a touch of nobility and refinement in an environment where manufactured objects abound.
The stained glass window carries the light. It transforms and awakens it, opens perspectives, emphasizes them and embellishes them. Its brilliance highlights the décor, harmonizes with it and strengthens it. So it finds its place in many places, classic or contemporary, integrating into all the decorations and all the rooms of the house: in interior separation, in doors, sliding partitions, glazed cupboards, in stairs, windows, transoms ... Stained glass can also flood the rooms of the house with an original and unique light through lamps, signs or luminous paintings.
The Tiffany Stained Glass is an assembly of pieces of glass, ground on the edges, colored or not, that can be painted, entirely set with copper tape and then welded with double-sided tinplate. Louis-Confort TIFFANY in 1890, son of great New York jewelers, and painter managed to simplify the technique of stained glass to bring it into the industrial era by replacing the lead profile with a copper ribbon and eliminating the paint, replacing it with the manufacture of opaline-based glass that could offer a wide choice of effects and textures. It was fully part of the Art Nouveau movement. This method, in addition to doors and windows, makes it possible to make small objects as well as, and above all, volumes such as "Tiffany" lamps.
In the field of stained glass, there is a glass that the French (and probably many Europeans) call "American", and that the Americans call "opalescent glass". It is a type of glass that appeared around 1880 in the United States, whose peculiarities are very characteristic. On the one hand, it is not transparent, but only translucent. Then, most of the time, it has an opalescent, milky appearance. It can also have several colors, and this coloring is random. It can also be dichroic, that is to say have a color by transparency and its complementary by reflection. Finally, it has reliefs on one of the surfaces, either regular or irregular.
The glass used by Lumière et Vitrail is therefore made in the United States.
As far as manufacturing is concerned, we are still on ancestral processes even if they are semi-automated: a circular furnace contains several crucibles that are accessed by openers. Each crucible contains a different glass color. The picking workers, using ladles of large capacity, each take a mass of molten glass from different crucibles. The first worker places the dominant color on the table. The second picker in turn pours the contents of his ladle, to add a second color to the first. A third worker then takes over: using a two-toothed fork, he mixes the two glass pastes randomly. His mixture finished, he pushes the mass of glass at the entrance of the rolling mill, and the cup against rollers. The glass passes through the rolling mill and enters directly into the annealing furnace. If the scroll is carved, it prints reliefs whose patterns return with regularity on the surface of the glass plate.
