Glass chandelier with strawberry flowers and berries


I love using red in my glass work and especially with the chandeliers. These strawberries provide points of colour that are balanced by the little white flowers. Each leaf has been brushed with a hint of soft tea green which also adds a nice touch of colour detail while retaining the clear glass look that works so well with chandeliers.

This glass chandelier  combines little strawberries and flowers with clear glass leaves and branches that have just a hint of green. It continues my love of combining the traditional feel of a glass chandelier with a more contemporary style and as usual, a nod to Arts and Crafts. Each flower and berry has been made using hand-mixed glass cane to add fine detail 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 35cm across the top of the shade.
