Now that's a large chandelier!

Sparks are flying, as always, at Potter Art Metal Studios in Dallas, Texas.  We are finishing up an oversized wrought iron chandelier for Debbie Perry's, a local interior designer's residential project.  The unusual thing about this fixture is that it's a reverse-tier, which by the way is one of Richard Potter's favorite configurations.  Usually wrought iron chandeliers have a smaller tier on top and a larger one on the bottom; this one will give the room a softer feel.

The finishing touches on this fixture include custom cast brass leaves which will follow the curves of the perimeter scrolls on which matching brass bobeches will be placed.  Twenty four electrified candles will crown the fixture.  I can't wait to see it all done!

The interior designers visiting our showroom have had nothing but positive comments on the chandelier, and a few have told us that they'd love to have oversized fixtures like this one for their commercial projects such as a hotel one is working on.  We have worked on several hotels, but I think it woud awesome to do it again, especially since we have had nothing but positive experiences in the past.

We adore interesting projects!
