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.

I’ve been doing lighting applications – both stained glass and fused –  for some time now.  In fact I have a category on this blog for my fused glass lighting works and another for my stained glass lighting works.  You may enjoy a look at how my style has evolved over the last 20 years.
