Also these lamp's column is approximately out of one disk black, white and clear Baroque glass manufactured by
and an agate slice on it's top. Therefore the glass plate must be cut into long, small stripes and these than must be shaped with diamond tools that they will become mitres around.
This Baroque glass is, by fusing three glass sorts to a disk, particularly uneven. For the same reason it varies also strongly (about 100%) in the thickness.
That makes a breaking difficult and sharpening particularly lengthy. All this only for the ongoing patern, which let
the light look like something organic.
