Natural Lighting: Custom Pendants by Shakúff
Inspiration is often depicted symbolically as a light bulb floating above our heads. The artisans of Shakúff have turned the tables, so to speak, on custom lighting by capturing the sources of their inspiration in exquisite fine art glass lamps, sconces, chandeliers, and pendants. Where does a glass artist like Shakúff’s Simon Peleg find his inspiration?
For the past 20 years, our artist has worked in agriculture and attends to his sizable mango orchard. The land and the sea, the backdrop against which our artist creates, provide a limitless palette of inspiration. “My inspiration, as an agriculturist and a land-worker, is mostly from nature. Nature, with its endless views and resources, provides me with endless colors, textures, and sights.”
Take a look at some of the representations of fruit and milk, fire and ice, and the sky above in Shakúff’s CustomMade portfolio. Each of these custom pendant lighting fixtures can be made in a variety of sizes and glass colors. You also have choices of salvaged teak or metal for your canopy material, canopy arrangements, and pendant lengths. Whatever your glass color choices, they will not fade over time. The colors are obtained during the fusing process and are a part of the glass material itself.
Add a “hanging still life” to your home with “Pomegranate” pendant lighting, available with gold, red, or amber glass with smooth or textured surfaces.
“The glass is half full on these philosophical mouth blown glass fixtures.” If you’d rather have a full glass of your “Milk” pendant lighting, you can also choose fully frosted glass.
Bring an ethereal atmosphere into your home with “Clouds” pendant lighting that features whirlwind-like shapes formed in the clear glass itself.
“Imagine a grouping of our bright Star pendants glittering in their own intimate constellation over your dining table, or a vast galaxy of them spinning through your soaring foyer.” “Stars” pendant lighting will twinkle with clear and red accented glass mixed into clusters.
