Grenadine Red Droplets: 10-Shade Brass Lighting Fixture

Go big or go home!

I’d been dreaming about a larger and more dramatic execution of my recent “cascading” fixtures, yet I wanted a more subtle and elegant colour and texture scheme.

When I thought about what colours and techniques I’ve used that evoke this imagery in me, I arrived at my very favourite Grenadine Red with a three-dimensional technique to delight further with shine and sparkle. See below for links to what I mean.

Grenadine is a sophisticated, learned dance partner. I never seem to get tired of working with her, and I especially love looking at her.

I’ve used Grenadine Red somewhat sparingly throughout this piece as “droplets”, textured points of refraction for light to dazzle you. It’s most intense in the upper shades and becomes less so as each cascades down, with just a hint in the bottom shades. Whispy black streaks provide additional subtle interest and tension. 

I’m delighted with how I adapted this favourite of mine to this art lamp.

25W equivalent LED candelabra bulbs consume merely 3.5 watts each with almost no heat and provide excellent colour rendition.

Solid brass tubular construction of the fixture itself is my design, as with all my lamps.

This piece is for sale.  If this isn’t exactly what you have in mind, I’m happy to design one for you to exceed your expectations!  Please Contact me.

Turquoise + Moss Green: 4-Shade Brass Lighting Fixture

I’m very happy that the images of this wonderful piece below capture the electric delight of the blue turquoise and moss green glass I used.  

My vision is for a cascading array, not unlike a grape vine.

Passion Red Tulips: 4-Shade Brass Lighting Fixture

Those of you who remember my Passion Red series of decorative platters will enjoy this quite original design, with the same wonderful red glass. 

Though I didn’t design these shades to look like tulips, with this colour (I plan to make more with this shape) I couldn’t help but be inspired to make them look like a bouquet of fresh Spring tulips!

Marigold + Flame Red: 5-Shade Brass Lighting Fixture

If you’re familiar with my work, no doubt you’ll appreciate my love affair with the Marigold glass I use in this 5-shade lamp.

Partnered with Flame Red and a bit of black streamers to add some “tension”, these bold shades project a fun, bold, playful effect.

Blues & Greens: 3 Shade Sconce

I’ve had surprisingly good feedback on this piece — the shades are not matched exactly to each other, and I think “eclectic” is the right word to describe this fun, informal piece.  Great colours too!

Orange + Black: 2 Shade Sconce

I think I like the shadows cast on the wall behind this piece as much as I like the shape of this 2 shade sconce lamp.
