Shades Of Distinction


September 05, 1993|By YOLANDA GARFIELD

They may be humble and practical or elevated by imagination to works of art.

Lamps, that is.

These inspired lamps by Massachusetts artist Janna Ugone are practical but by no means humble. With their flirtatious finials and jewel-studded aluminum or copper stems, they seem destined to become collector's items. Only a few are shown here but they're available in a staggering variety of patterns and colors because Ms. Ugone welcomes commissions.

The mostly ceramic (and sometimes paper) shades are earthy and impeccably proportioned.

Gazelle, in the Village of Cross Keys, offers a limited number of Ugone floor, table and hanging lamps. Pictured here are 25-inch, ceramic-shaded table lamps that range in price from $350-$370.
