Lighting Issues

Our living room's four walls are arches that meet in each of the four corners.
Noble has wired in light bulbs in each corner where the arches meet to creat this cool light effect.
I am trying to design sconces cover up the CFL bulbs and shed colorful light.
The last of these four photos shows a piece of recycled glass I was trying to design as a sconce. Our buddy Willy gave us a glass melting kiln, so I've been experimenting with melting bottles. That one is beer bottles with clear marbles inside.
I have been trying to research how to slump recycled- (rather than art-) glass, but I think I'll have to get a new ceramic tile saw. Probably with a 7" or so diamond blade (we over-used and busted our last one) and slump the bottles and cut it to fit the space.

 Wondering why we haven't been blogging? Bubbles is the reason....
Meet BUBBLES!! Our new puppy from the Alpine Humane Society. We are So In LOVE!
He chose his name...the first thing he did when he came into Eve's Garden was pee on a case of champagne (ok Miller High Life, the champagne of beers) so we started calling him Bubbly... then Bubbles, and sometimes Buba. . ..
Not a yipper and SO SMART. ... gonna train him to help us load the mixer.

I love the walls, the corners and the puppy! I too acquired a new puppy in Cocles who I miss terribly...had to replace Mamacita who had bone cancer....and love the new puppy. Yours is cute, but not nearly as cute as mine, ha ha. Love you, Madeline
