A little background…
The inspiration came from the highest paying commission I ever did, a kitchen light fixture that was recessed into the apex of a dome in a penthouse condo kitchen. For scale, the dome ID was 10 feet in diameter, the 3/8" steel disc that forms the fixture was 3 feet in diameter. The glass prisms are a foot long, and reveal by 4". When you turned it on, it looked like the voice of God could emanate from it.
You might have heard of Orient & Flume glass company. It seems they put the company in business with a single order for a ceiling “chandelier” that looked like a crystal group about the size of a football field with each crystal a blown glass hexagon of different lengths, In Vegas naturally.
Thank you, but it’s really simple compared to the complexity of a lot of the artistic designs on display here. Weeding was the most difficult part of it.
I’m happy with it, but the mental image of it was better than reality.
The best part was the precision of the glowforge. The reality of having a laser has exceeded my every expectation. I treasure it!
