I have hand cut all of the stained glass tiles (diamonds, triangles and squares), adhered them to the lantern base with silicone and then grouted the lantern. The lantern is then sealed so that it can be displayed outside (in rain and snow). This lantern style is inspired by the lanterns found in the grand bazaar in Istanbul, Turkey.
Glass panel design colors include: a variety of shades of blue.
Each lantern side features a different, unique pattern (but the same colors are used on both sides, so that the whole lantern is cohesive).
Material of lantern is gray oxidized metal.
Grout color is charcoal in color.
**Lantern is beautiful both in sunlight and lit from within by candle at night. The design is covered in a sealant, so the lantern can be displayed safely both indoors (i.e. displayed on a tabletop) and outdoors (i.e. on a porch or hung on a shepherd hook).
