Driving through the prairies will inevitably show you a cheerful field of sunflowers facing the sun. The Sunflower Fields Lantern will let you take that feeling home with you! The whimsical design will leave you wanting to run your hands through the sunflowers.
Measuring 6×6″ and 11″ tall, this lantern is a sweet size to use for a centrepiece on your dining or coffee table. Alternatively, it looks great on an end table or cabinet and is perfect for smaller spaces. The lantern is also safe for outdoor use. This makes it a perfect addition to your summer patio decor, or a warm welcome to your visitors all summer long.
The panels each have a uniquely arranged design, with each panel showing a slightly different arrangement. In other words, each side of the Sunflower Fields Lantern is intended to be viewed. The panels are hand crafted and installed into a quality metal lantern, ensuring you will receive a safe and durable lantern. Additionally, the lantern has a hinged door with a magnetic latch. As such, you can easily place your pillar candle or flickering LED inside to light up your summery scene. (Candle available separately here.)

How’s It Made?
Handcrafted from art glass, we create the Sunflower Fields Lantern using multiple steps. First, we cut and polish the turquoise glass to the appropriate size. Then, we cut and shape the individual pieces for the sunflower petals. We use a powdered glass for the leaves and stem, and ensure a layer of clear powder is between the turquoise and yellow to avoid any unwanted colour reactions. Next, we carefully place the petals and add brown frits to represent seeds. This adds the fun texture to the design. Because the colour is the glass itself, you won’t ever have to worry about the colour fading or washing off.
Finally, we kiln-fire the glass panels to a low temperature to ensure the texture will reflect light off the curved surfaces. During the firing, the glass is annealed. Because of this, the strength and durability of the glass is increased, so you know it will easily withstand regular use.
