Fever Lights1999, shades with lighteffects
In 1999 Royal Leerdam invited Ineke to think about glassproducts for reproduction. One project was Fever Lights, a collection of crystal glass lightshades. All shades could be blown in the same mould. A different glassblowing, decoration or finishing technique was used on each shade all reflecting different light effects on the wall when the light would be switched on.Allthough interested Royal Leerdam did not start production of any of the lights. Ineke Hans herself started up production of Hay Fever light after a few years.
