Art glass chandelier – Market Garden
I love colour, and to be given the opportunity to work with lots of it has been very pleasing. This chandelier is destined for a local restaurant which has quite an individual, quirky decorative theme. The hand blown fruit and veg – peppers, apples, pears, oranges etc… is mixed with smaller berry drops and pea pods. Pale green leaves complete the piece.
Each piece of this glass chandelier has been made using hand-mixed glass cane to add fine detail and achieve the colour I wanted, and all chandelier drops are finished with little leaves.
This glass chandelier hangs from a metal top designed by me. Each drop hooks on to the drop above, or the top, by means of a ring connector that is strong enough to hold the weight but easy to attach, combining the unique nature of the flameworked glass with practicality. The chandelier measures approximately 50cm across the top of the shade
