Let your inner child out; make a wish and whisper it to the dandelion seeds, sending them on their journey with the breeze. Hold your wishes close with the Dandelion Lantern.
Measuring approximately 6″ x 6″ by 11″ in height, the Dandelion Lantern is a perfect size to enjoy for indoor or outdoor decor. For example, you can display the lantern as a tabletop centrepiece, paired perfectly with this LED candle. With each side a unique and detailed design, the lantern can be viewed from any angle, and is sure to be a conversational piece. Similarly, you can easily display the lantern on the floor as an accent piece, or as outdoor decor on the patio or in the sunroom at the cottage.
How’s It Made?
We create the lantern using multiple steps, for each of the paired sides. For the feature sides of the Dandelion Lantern, we create the design for the screen we want to use. After coating and drying the screens, we then expose the emulsion using our designs and rinse out the unexposed emulsion. This creates the screen stencil we use to print with. Next, we cut the glass to the size required, ensuring it is cleaned before we print on the glass. Using fusible glass enamel as paint, we pull the enamel over the screen which allows the enamels to pass through the open designs on the screen and contact the glass.
Once we have examined each print for quality and have touched up any defects, we place the glass into the kiln. We fire the panels at a low temperature to ensure the enamels are sintered into the surface of the glass.
To mimic gentle raindrops on the windows, we chose the clear textured glass with oval droplets. We cut this directional glass to fit the lantern, and buff the edges.
Because the enamels are fused into the glass, they can never wash off or fade. During the firing process, we anneal the glass to strengthen it for durability. Because of this, you can be sure to enjoy your Dandelion Lantern decor for many years to come.
