I’m so pleased with how well this chandelier turned out…was going to wait until my delivery drive to show this piece here on my bog but thought, “hey, I can show it now and then”!’ This is a beautiful reflection of California wine country.
The iron fixture for this piece was custom made and hand forged specifically to fit this one glass bowl—and is an example of what I refer to as my ‘ornate style’ iron fixture. Though I love to paint large chandeliers, very few of my pieces each year qualify as large. Most people can handle a large painted chandelier in their space…but they are expensive to create. I only create large chandeliers on commission as people tend to want something specific in a commission…and again, they are quite expensive to make that I wait for those specific pieces.
This hand painted chandelier has grapes of many colors including red, violet, burgundy, green, yellow and blue plus song birds. The client also requested a humming bird or two and I did paint those for her though they are not normally part of my Vineyard Romance Series chandeliers. The large size of this piece allows for the extra grape colors and extra birds and dragonflies (which were painted from pictures from my pond). It photographed lovely and I really wanted to share it with you now! Thank you for looking at my newest, reverse painted glass chandelier in my Vineyard Romance Series.
