Working with the existing architecture of the space, a round basket loaded with colorful blown glass balls in the palette of sea glass adorns the arched foyer entry.

Desert Floral Chandelier

Size: 36″ diameter x 42″ tall

The Story: As residents of Scottsdale, Arizona, the clients were surrounded by a desert environment. Documenting all of the surrounding plants & architecture of their home provided key design elements for this project.

The lower basket is filled with glass stalks in warm desert tones. The upper portion is covered with blown glass colorful desert blooms. The chandelier looks different at all times of the day as the natural light fills the room from the desert sky. In the evening the projected light paints colorful patterns and textures onto the ceiling.

 

A Hays Town Style Chandelier

Media: Kiln Fired Glass with mild steel patina frame.

Size: 48″ diameter x 48″ tall

Location: Private Residence

The Story: This client was in the process of renovating a home in a historic neighborhood in New Orleans. Guided by the architecture of American A. Hays Town, the style was influenced by Spanish, French & Creole history of Louisiana.

“Town’s involvement in the selection of interior materials, colors, and even furnishings was extensive—sometimes going as far as to include the recommendation of a certain type of dog to accent the house. Town was one of the first architects to salvage old building materials and incorporate them into new houses, giving his homes a comfortable, elegant feel. He would often scourge abandoned warehouses and rice mills for floorboards, fireplace mantels, or flagstones, handpicking the individual elements that would eventually be incorporated into his architecture.”

This Kiln Fired chandelier was custom created for the dining room in a free form parachute style. The silver leaf stained class creates a warm glow against the custom painted faux finish walls of the space.
