We are really excited to announce the latest addition to our hand-blown glass statement lighting chandelier range.
Say hello to the Isabel Chandelier!
Providing opulence in any room or stairwell, including an IP rated alternative for the bathroom, the Isabel Chandelier was first inspired by designer Esther Patterson’s close friend Isabel Cordero-Padilla. Isabel had commissioned a chandelier for her bedroom and came to the Curiousa workshop to get inspired.
Esther said of the design process with her friend, “Isabel has a very adventurous personality and has always been an inspiration to me. It was her idea to mix semi-opaque glass shades with small bone china stems I’d handmade for a previous project. So it was only right that we named this brand new chandelier in homage to her!”
Hand-made to order, the Isabel Chandelier is designed using bone china and hand-blown transparent glass stems with semi-opaque shades in Aqua, Lichen, Blau and Rosa. These delicate choices create an ethereal centrepiece, emanating a subtle, delicate style.
Esther said, “I love the combination of the soft semi-opaque glass with the delicate creamy nature of bone china. They combine so beautifully and it’s a chance for me to return to a material I love to work with. I’m so happy to be back in my ceramic workshop bringing this beautiful material into my lighting designs.”
Allowing for an extra level of choice, the bathroom alternative for the Isabel Chandelier is IP65 standard rated for use in all wet areas, near sinks, baths and shower areas. Each light piece is made to measure using round, fabric covered (non-twisted) flex and featuring an enclosed LED G9 bulb.
There are 24 glass colours to choose from with various fitting finishes and flex colours. To add further flexibility, most glass shapes from the current range can be added to make each chandelier installation totally unique.
Each bone china element is designed and hand-made by Esther in her personal ceramic workshop. Likewise every piece of Curiousa glass is hand-blown in England, with each of their glassblowers using the centuries-old technique of free-blowing, forming the shape of the glass literally by hand and by tool, without the use of moulds.
So if you are looking for a lighting design for your home that has an extra special touch of elegance and opulence, take a closer look at the Isabel Chandelier.
