Tulip Shades Supplier?

Hi folks - Just wondering if anyone knows the actual glass shop or shops that are blowing these for the Lamp Glass company? Link attached. They are represented as handmade in the USA, although with the pricing of $29 it sure feels like it would be China.

I am interested in contacting the shop for a special project with other versions of these shades

Thnkas in advance

You’re right about the shades coming from China. The cheap ones in your picture are machine produced in clear glass with white frit. The colors are painted on after the shades are cooled. The luster shades are a different matter. Those are made by hand here in the US by Jay Redington. I know that Lundberg Studios & Carl Radke still have their tulip molds and all can be found by Googling their names. Others back east, couldn't say. You might want to also post this question on Reddit on the r/glassblowing sub. Just my 2c....

Thanks much Brian, I was pointed towards Jay Redington's work by another member also and will follow up. I was pretty sure the shades were from China, but thought I would see what folks might know out there. Appreciate the response

The sheer amount of mod work to keep that sub on /r/glassblowing on reddit clean from bongs is amazing.
