Description

Ten years of experimenting with artisanal glass through its malleability, transformations and deformities have now come together into a brand-new piece of decorative lighting, by Carol Gay, based in Brazil.
In its creation, space was always granted for randomness and the material was allowed to guide the creative process. Here, the glass mainly acts as a refractive element for the light. From the outset, it communicates a reinterpretation of traditional crystal chandeliers.
However, upon second glance, one may note that there is more to the forms it presents than merely an allusion to the classic.
An array of unique pendants overlap and align, hinting at the restless character of my design career as well as the expertise of master glassworkers.
Individually, these elements represent the flora and fauna of Brazil, particularly that of the Amazon region. Through this, the object speaks to the importance of safeguarding the richness of this important biome and eternalizing it – just as glass does when it cools.
This reflection is materialized in the pendants shaped like snakes, leaves, crocodiles and tropical flowers. These can be repositioned at any time along the hanging chandelier, free to move and live together as creatures in nature.
In material terms, the transparency of the glass is enhanced by the satin sheen of the aged brass. The use of a central bar made of Brazilian “Pinta Cinza” marble – which also illuminates to filter the light – captures the vocation of master artisans who use high quality and durable materials. This turns into a dialogue between inspiration and material, designer and master glassmaker, classicism and authorial creation that renders the visual effect of the collection even sharper.
