Fantastic lamps made of Mosaic glazing, it is reminiscent of the old Tiffany lamps but these glass art lamps are much more refined through the use of very small glass parts. Around the river Mississippi in Illinois the most fantastic lamps are made that can find a place in any interior.

In the time of the Indians, there was an urban network around the Mississippi. Of these, Cahokia (in what is now Illinois) was for centuries the main settlement along the river. Although Europeans left the area alone for a long time, the population was decimated by imported diseases such as smallpox. Some people adopted a nomadic lifestyle with the help of feral and re-tamed horses. The cities were abandoned and expired. Modern cities on the Mississippi include Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Davenport, Saint Louis, Memphis, Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

Mosaic is an art form in which a large image is made of a large number of small colored stones (tesserae), which are masonry in a floor or wall. With glass it is possible to make a stained glass mosaic. In Greek and Roman times, mosaics were made in luxury villas, depicting images of emperors, gods or scenes of everyday life. Mosaics have been found in various places in Europe and have been preserved to this day. From the Middle Ages on, cosmatic technology is known, in which geometric figures have been laid in a refined way. Mosaic was found in Abra, Mesopotamia as early as the second half of the third millennium BC. This mosaic work consisted of different pieces of colored stone, shells and ivory. The first glazed mosaic tiles were found 1500 BC. In addition, there were various eras and empires that have influenced the development of mosaic. The Greeks were lovers of mosaic art. The Greek style was developed mainly in the third century BC. The subject of these works of art were mainly mythological creatures, religious types, wealth and nature. In this period, painting, as well as sculpture, was more popular than mosaic art. As a result, many mosaic works of art are based on or inspired by paintings.
