Multicolored glass chandelier


The first of a new series, the Shagadelic Chandelier was made using scrap glass and flat glass nuggets, firmly soldered into place between the spokes of a re-purposed "Fat Bike" (beach-cruiser) style wheel. The depth/width of the wheel allows the lights to all be sunk into the lamp, as opposed to sitting on top of it when viewed from its edge, giving it a neat and modern overall appearance. When selecting the glass, I chose a color palette reminiscent of 1970's design themes, with intentionally clashing warmer and cooler tones arranged so that not only is each panel inset into the spokes a unique piece of abstract art, but with all of the panel colors and shapes carefully balanced and arranged to work together cohesively as a whole.
