THE TEA PARTY:
SHADOW BOX

Another wonderful invention from the skilled craftsmen at the Porcelain Garden! Here's what they say about this product:

"Elegant and refined, this electrically illuminated frame's uncluttered style is a perfect match for today's decorating styles and colors. Its clean lines and satin finish are a perfect counterpoint to the intricate detail of our lithophanes. Made of solid hardwood with a dark Cherry finish, the Shadow Box is a very versatile lamp. It can stand upright, or lean back like a picture frame on its integrated easel back. It can even be hung on the wall. It will look great on a dresser, desk, nightstand, shelf unit, bath counter... just about anywhere! Complete with 7W bulb, 6ft. cord with on/off switch. Nicely boxed.

"Lithophanes were conceived in 1827, when it was discovered that a remarkable three dimensional image could be produced by shining light through a carving of varied thicknesses in porcelain. These beautiful transparencies are achieved by first carving the image into beeswax. The translucency of the wax allows the artist to see the result of his labor as he works. A plaster casting is taken from this masterwork, then a fine porcelain paste is pressed into this mold. After drying, the panels are kiln fired to 2300 degrees, to achieve their extreme density and amazing translucency. Over half do not survive this process; a testimony to the difficulty of this technique. We are dedicated to the preservation and continuation of this most unusual art form."
