Tropical floral motif billiard table lamp - view #4

Fused Glass Billiard Table Lamp in Tropical Flora

 

Light of Lanai. This majestic yet modern billiard table lamp is 15 In high, 17 in. wide and 49 inches long with 4 separate pieces meeting in compound curves and a wrap-around theme of tropical flora dancing a colorful pattern. This custom billiard table lamp was designed and built by Kate on commission for a private residence in Hawaii. The metal work was designed and built by Carson Janssen of La Pine, OR. The dichroic flora change hue based on reflected or transmitted light. This functional yet provocatively artistic lighting piece provides adequate lamination for the billiard table yet claims main stage in the seaside billiard room of its Hawaiian residence. All of the flora in this piece include dichroic glass. So therefore the color changes depending upon whether the light is reflected (light off) or transmitted (light on). This effect can be seen on the additional photos available by clicking on the photo at left.  (2014)

Chandelier with 30 hand blown orchids surounding a central cone

Orchid Chandelier

 

 

Orchid Chandelier. Four sprays of glass orchids circle the interior cone of ocean blue to illuminate the entry of a private seaside villa in Hawaii.  Kate MacLeod, as master artist, conceived, drew, and specified the orchids and interior cone, which were blown by Luca Rattazzi of Effetto Glassworks, Richmond, CA. Carson Janssen of La Pine, OR, built the metal cage, which acts as orchid stems. At 21 inches long and with an 18 inch diameter, this functional yet artistic piece welcomes close attention upon arrival and departure from the villa. (2014)

 

 

 

 

 

Dichroic glass painting of bird in flight

Bird-in-Flight. Hand painted with Dichroic Extract.

 

 

Bird in Flight. This 8” x 12” black glass panel is creatively painted with CBS Dichroic ExtractTM.  The glimmer, sparkle, and life of the art is aroused by teasing the near microscopic particles of dichroic glass to their precise position, such as a master painter would accomplish with multiple layers. Planned for production in the near future, a wildlife series will soon appear in your favorite galleries. (2014)

 

 

 

Wall-mounted Glass Gecko

Wall-Mount Glass Gecko

 

Wave Gecko. This 19”, 3D gecko adorns the wall of a Hawaiian home paying tribute to the mythological Mo’o. Geckos, known for color and shape shifting, are representative guardians and connectors to the gods within Polynesian culture. Kate enhanced the color ability of the gecko to incorporate a wave pattern that was both fixed in the dichroic coating on the base glass, and expanded with the application of fused glass balls, adding both color and texture. A magical being indeed!
