Honey Crystalline Pendant Light
This honey crystalline pendant light was wheel thrown from high-fire stoneware. It would look gorgeous as a single feature light, perhaps above the front door or over a desk, or it could be grouped with my jade and teal single pendant lights (if available). Please note, my light fixtures include a 240v ikea light fitting (as it fits the opening perfectly). This is suitable for most European countries and Israel. If you’re interested in purchasing from the US or another country with different voltage requirements, please consult with an electrician about changing the wiring before purchasing.
There are many steps to making crystalline glazed ceramics so it is incredibly time consuming, but I hope you’ll agree that the results are worth the effort! I make every crystalline glaze in the studio right before every glaze firing, as the glazes don’t ‘keep’ well. The components need to be measured precisely to the fraction of a gram and applied carefully in numerous, thick coats. Every piece has a single-use, hand built ‘riser’ and ‘glaze catcher’ dish made to fit it perfectly for the glaze firing. This is necessary as the high gloss, two-dimensional crystals need a glaze that flows a lot to develop, and all that flowing glaze has to go somewhere. After the glaze firing, the pieces are removed from the risers and catchers by a number of methods and then the razor edged base needs to be sanded, using 5 different grit sanders until it’s baby-bottom smooth. My crystalline pieces are glaze fired to 1300 degrees celcius over 16.5 hours. They are dishwasher safe, but I recommend to hand wash them to preserve their beauty.
