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.

Grenadine Transom Window Series

Firey Nebula

A wonderment of colour, texture and design! You may recognize the marigold, hot red and orange glasses from Hot & Spicy, used with significantly different method and resulting mood.

Some accents are fully fused into the base, while most are dimensionally fused providing a wonderful texture effect adding life and apparent movement.

Firey Nebula is 24″ wide x 23″ high.

Note on mounting/hanging: This panel can be mounted or hanged inside a window or backlit frame using various hardwares.  Greg does not commit fused panels to a mounting method at time of completion; in consultation with the purchaser he will utilize a chosen method that best suits his/her design and viewing preferences.

Goth Cube Chandelier

SOLD

A stunning and definitely one-of-a-kind stained glass “chandelier”, Greg used the copper foil method to create 4 unique panels making up the “cube”, suspended by its custom steel framework.

This work is suited well for a high-ceiling dining room, foyer or lobby space.

Goth Cube Chandelier measures 11.5″ x 11.5″ x 20.25″ (5.0 feet total height including metal support structure).

An elegant 15″ plate made from light blue opalescent glass and striking darker cathedral glass.

King Blooms Banner 2009

Greg’s River Flows Through It (2001) has been selected as the 2009 branding piece of King Blooms, King Township’s organizing committee of the national Communities in Bloom organization.

Greg with River Flows Through It and King Blooms Banner 2009
King Weekly published an interview with Greg on his inspiration for River Flows Through It, used as the King Blooms Banner 2009.

The image below is a sample banner for this year’s organization – it will hang on light standards in all major towns across King Township to promote awareness of this campaign from May through October.

On the request of the King Blooms Committee, Arts Society King (ASK)  selects one piece of art each year from a King Township artist, preferably from a medium not featured previously.  This will be the fourth year ASK has been, well, “asked” to perform this duty.

ASK’s Board was impressed by the work’s metaphors of the history of our rural area (by the gothic window shape); the natural colours utilized to convey a sense of our community’s passion for nature and preservation; and the flowing clear bands of glass signifying the interrelationships, power and beauty between them.

Greg is delighted to have this work featured so predominantly within King for the majority of 2009.
