The dome of Silica lamp is formed from the union of 12 glass pieces embedded umana other. We were chosen to use a triangular shaped piece, in which its design allows for precise fitting of tiles to then mount the desired product. It is used for the base cedar wood, which is responsible for fixing the glass dome by fitting also responsible for accommodating the lamp. The 12 pieces of glass that form the dome were fixed on each other by means of clear resin to ensure safe handling.
To manufacture adopted the fusing technique using glass remains flat and heated to temperature 1000 ° C, thereby obtaining the pieces to their proper assembly.
