Tiffany Greed

Greeds have a resemblance to snails in a horse-like fashion, but are definitely not snails. They were about the first things I drew, as a child, and they evolved from just the basic snail shell to actually having bodies and being decorated with all sorts of squiggles and polka dots and stripes. When I would show my mom my latest masterpiece and ask if it wasn't the greatest thing in the whole world, she would respond, "That's agreed!" Mom always knew best – that's what they were, alright.

This particular Greed came to me after a recent trip to my favorite lighting shop. I lust after Tiffany-style lamps in general and thought a Tiffany Greed would be lovely indeed.
