I’ve made custom lighting over the 20 years I’ve been doing glass art (if you dig into my blog post history you’ll see several examples).
After talking with past, present and prospective customers, not to mention visiting various design trade shows and reading all the trade magazines you likely do, I realized that I can do better than much of what I was seeing!
But … I needed a supplier of not only the electrical hardware components to produce a complete product offering: I also needed a local metal supplier who can manufacture bent steel rods and associated fittings to my design.
I now have both! And am I ever excited.
This 4-fixture “chandelier” is but a mere prototype, literally assembled from a bucket of extra components gracefully given to me by my new steel supplier.
In the coming weeks and months, I’m looking forward to applying my creativity to produce some stunning designs using 4, 6, 8 and even 10-fixture plans.
The beauty of my relationship with these two suppliers is, that I can provide you top quality components in a wide variety of colours and finishes, and functional options. And I can apply these toward my style of unique, original designs.
The chandelier below has navy blue fused glass shades, made in my kiln and “draped” to appear almost as if they’re melting. I’m using chrome candelabra fixtures with “Edison” style bulbs for added effect.
I’m happy to design something for you .. custom and original .. to your specification, using our shared vision for your home, office, restaurant, or bar. Please contact me at your convenience for more information.
