Electric Chandelier (5 sided)

The Electric Chandelier is constructed with steel, bronze and glass. It measures 26" in diameter and the shades are 5". The shapes are cut from mild steel and a gas line is brazed on to hide the wiring. The chain is all custom made, machining thick wall tubing into the spiriling or fluted shapes. This chain is very unusual and highly labor intensive. Many of the chandeliers are variations of these methods. The bronze on steel creates an ancient quality, like a relic dug up from an Etruscan or Roman ruin.
