Mod-Quat Trees

Media: Blown glass with mild steel patina frames.

Size: 7′-0″ to 9′-0″

Location:
The Carnegie Café

The Story:
Five custom lamps for the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh. The design challenge had multiple factors including the lamps needed to be easily moved out of the space when it was used for another function, LED and modern-organic. Each “tree” has 7-9 lead crystal blown glass globes with design inspiration from the kumquat trees in our front yard. UL listed.

Stalk Tower Chandelier

Media: Blown Glass with mild steel patina frame.

Size: 34″ diameter x 108″ tall

Location: Crave, Summerlin, Nevada

The Story: The latest location of restaurant Crave is located downtown Summerlin which is just minutes from the Vegas Strip.  The location features a soaring 30′-0″ front entry foyer and BrottWorks was commissioned to create a chandelier to fill the space and illuminate the tower.  The three tier fixture is loaded with hot glass pulled stalks in various shades of reds and amber tones.  The projected light onto the interior walls makes a grand entrance to the location.

In the background, two Mini Stalk Chandeliers hang over the booths in the bar area.  Two other fixtures are featured in the VIP seating areas.


 

Glass Bird House

Media: Kiln Fired Glass with mild steel patina frame.

Size: 46″ diameter x 90″ tall

Location: Private Residence

The Story: As avid fine art collectors, the clients wanted a one-of-kind sculpture for their new home.

From the initial loose sketches to the realized design installed on site, the mixed media sculpture was a true collaboration. Allowing the artist to fine tune new techniques in kiln fired glass opened the project to push the medium in new directions.

The four large kiln fired, textured panels create the outer bird house. The inner “nest” is comprised of additional kiln fired shapes and pulled hot glass stalks. In the evening the chandelier projects striking patterns and color onto the entire front foyer.

The Story: Crave restaurant has embraced high end, custom fine art for their interiors since the first location opened in 2006.
