Tiffany Lamps are beautiful in a “visit to grandma’s” way, but Michael McLane is energizing the art with a fun dose of space opera. His handmade stained-glass lamps make characters like Boba Fett and Master Chief look like they’d fit perfectly in a World War I-era parlor.
McClane is a self-professed geek who got into stained glass by watching his father dabble in the art form, creating statues of sedate subjects like butterflies and people golfing. “I was familiar with Tiffany stained glass lamps and saw the building process as a technique which could easily be used to create unique 3-D art pieces beyond the simple domes or cones,” he explains.
