Trio of Blue Crystalline Pendant Lights
My trio of blue crystalline pendant lights were wheel thrown from high-fire stoneware. They look particularly gorgeous hanging above a kitchen table, island or peninsula (I have similar ones hanging in my kitchen!) The stunning crystalline glaze combo is on the insides of the fixtures as well, and they are incredibly luminous when the lights are on. Please note, I provide 240v ikea light fittings (as they perfectly fit the openings). These are suitable for most European countries and Israel. If you’re interested in ordering from the US or a different country that uses different voltage, please consult an electrician about changing the wiring before you purchase. There are a few minor glaze faults at the very tops of the pieces, (see photos) they aren’t noticeable when hung.
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.
