Designer/glassblower Tracy Glover introduces Blackburn Ceiling Lights in pendant and semi-flushmount configurations. The two new designs feature Tracy’s handblown glass diffusers in a myriad of customizable shapes, sizes, colors and patterns, so each piece is truly site-specific.
Suspended from a round canopy offered in choice of five metal finishes, the pendant may be made in any of five shapes (Globe, Barrel, Canister, Enoki or Fishbowl) and a range of sizes. A variation on the canopy is available with multiple ports to transform the single pendant design into a multi-light design.
Patterns include a bubbled effect made with the Italian technique Primavera (shown in a solid color), the two-tone Ombre Primavera, Striped, Lace, Twist, Calamari, Licorice Stick and Ostrich. Clients may choose among 16 translucent solids and 29 colorways. (Pattern and color availability based on size specified.)
Glass diffuser available in Globe or Fishbowl shape. Five-inch round canopy offered in choice of five metal finishes. Eight patterns in 16 solid colors and 29 colorways; shown is Tracy’s new Calamari motif.
The brand new Calamari pattern is rooted in sketches Tracy made of seed pods she found on a hike, which led to a series of vegetable drawings, including onions and corn cobs. She was considering how to interpret the drawings as glass vessels. Murrini, a traditional Roman glassblowing process, fuses bundles of colored glass canes, then slices through them. The effect is similar to a cross section of the corn cob. She loves Calamari’s capricious nature; no two are alike.
