Lighting up a passion

  • • Andrei believes that laziness is the only constraint for a master
  • • He has raised three apprentices
  • • It takes him about 20 days to make one lampshade

Andrei Dzyuba was on a legal career path that didn’t suit him, but life has a way of giving us second chances. In 2003, he found a website of a studio producing Tiffany lampshades and fell in love with the aesthetics of stained glass. Andrei felt that he could make lamps like that. It took him three years of diligent learning to reach a level of craftsmanship that enabled him to create his first lampshade. Many years later, his work travels all over the world. He makes various objects, but his speciality is Tiffany lampshades: “Turning a new lamp on gets me excited like a child!” he says. Andrei wants to preserve the cultural legacy of stained glass making.

Parasol lamp

This iconic museum replica of a Tiffany lamp belongs to a subclass of geometric lampshades. The lamp consists of glass 336 combined glass elements, made of Armstrong glass from the US. According to Tiffany's idea, the lampshade depicts the globe lined with meridians and parallels, and not an umbrella, as it might seem at first glance. The base of the lamp is made following the classic Duffner & Kimberly design.
