We were delighted to support Jo Downs and Curiousa with some of the lighting solutions for their new collections launched at Decorex this year.
Curiousa reinforced their market leading position as designers and suppliers of beautifully crafted and unique pieces of glass. Adding to this stunning array of glass were three striking balloon style pendants “Ume” with elegant fringe detail.
We were delighted to realise Ester Patterson’s vision and create these amazing pendants.
This was Esther’s first departure from glass into print and pattern - using her inspirations from the surrounding Derbyshire countryside and a mix of floral imagery, the prints were brought to life through an opulent silver-stemmed chandelier, Oriental-inspired coloured glass lights, and silk lanterns set against the backdrop of Esther’s personally designed wallpaper, ‘Garden is Sanctuary’.
The Ume pendant is Esther’s first venture into silk lighting. This light displays a dramatically printed garden scene featuring ferns and peonies taken from the original paintings and sketches of Esther’s own Derbyshire garden.
Jo Downs continues to push the boundaries of fused glass as Art and Architecture. With her new collections showcasing the increasing amounts of work they are doing with Architects and Designers for both buildings and cruise ships, Jo has again created stunning new collections in glass and added to their range of lighting.
Launched this year were a rectangle floor and table lamp inset with delicate glass panels framed with a gold leaf metal surround which we created to present her new designs.
Also on display were two new ceiling pendants:- a beautiful autumnal leaf chandelier featuring layers of rust and red leaves evoking a real feel of New England in the fall and a fused blue discs chandelier – always referencing the nautical surrounds that inspire Jo’s most brilliant work.
The discs of various sizes and textures, and colours of blues and greens, cascade organically in a long drop and are available to order in bespoke sizes.
