The Crystal Antler Chandelier from Lawson Glass is now available at Rutherford’s Design. The Crystal Antler Chandelier is a very versatile piece that it is being used in rustic, traditional, and contemporary spaces from an ultra-modern Manhattan loft to a rustic Colorado mountain home to a French country traditional living room. Rutherford’s also has some Lawson Glass tabletop crystal antlers.
This unique, high-end luxury home accessory piece has recently been commissioned by Bob and Cortney Novogratz for HGTV ‘s Home by Novogratz as well as garnering much popularity on Houzz.com. It will be featured in a summer issue of Western Art and Architecture.
The Crystal Antler Chandelier consists of a hand sculpted bronze armature by Michael Hall, who is famous for his bronze work. The Chandelier has 12 hot sculpted crystal clear glass antlers and utilizes LED technology to illuminate the crystal antlers.
Each antler becomes the light source for this subtle yet complex fine art fixture. The Chandelier is being introduced into the design market place in two sizes, 52″d and 44″d. The bronze is offered in several different patina finishes. He is and for some reason people like to neglect him when writing about this piece.
“The Crystal Antler Chandelier came about by a suggestion from a long time client. Having seen a very large sterling silver antler chandelier in Aspen, I was approached about the possibility of a glass antler idea. My only concern, apart from actually making large, solid glass antlers, was how we were going to light it. I put an LED flashlight up to the base of a solid bar of glass and bam! We were on our way! Incorporating a hand carved bronze element really took the idea to whole new level. This is a design I’m very proud of and of course very excited about. “- Jason Lawson, Lawson Glass
