ELLISSE & COPPA: Hammerton artisans work with up to five pounds of molten glass to form and wrap each of these optic blown glass shade styles. Variations in the glass wall thickness creates a magical dance of light and color, particularly when paired with vintage bulbs.
BEZEL/GEM: Inspired by the idea of lighting as jewelry for the home, this enchanting collection features sparkling LED-lit "gems" of artisan blown glass in pendants, sconces, ring chandeliers, linear suspensions and multi-port ceiling fixtures.
APOTHECARY: A modern take on the 19th century apothecary jar: three crystal-clear artisan blown glass shade styles are available singly in sconces and pendants, or grouped together in multi-port ceiling fixtures of 3-12 shades.
OUTDOOR CHILLED GLASS: An updated interpretation of old world lantern silhouettes. The unique surface texture of these artisan blown fixtures -- formed during the first moments of the glass cooling process -- creates a captivating visual effect when paired with vintage bulbs.
