Spoon me

SCWe love our clients. Especially when they are up for doing something totally different. (Remember our art with a purpose post where our client let us have our way with two canvases for his dining room?). Well now meet our friend and client, Ms. Georgia. She wanted a chandelier that was different for her breakfast room. Something that was traditional in a sense but also totally hers. Her breakfast room has a traditional oak table, a few new Ballard slip covered chairs, and an antique church pew. It’s awfully pretty. But it’s not a formal space. It’s a family space filled with antiques. So working with our friends at House Electric we came up with the three tiered spoon chandelier. First I came up with the design, the look, the elements. Then we decided on the size. Then we had to gather up our spoons. A couple of weeks later (and some good old fashioned elbow grease from House Electric) and we had this g o r g e u s finished product. Hung in her breakfast room, it is a piece that was made just for her. A statement that no one else has. A piece made just for Ms. Georgias breakfast room.
