Winter, the most contemporary piece of our Four Seasons features multifaceted polished aluminum snowflakes that create a dramatic display of light and shadow. We offer a choice of separate finishes for the snowflakes and frame.
David Martin, Design Team Leader at Hubbardton Forge, has always been fascinated by geometric patterns in nature, "I still remember when, as a kid, I first learned about “Snowflake” Bentley, a fellow Vermonter who was the first person to document the intricate patterns of snowflakes with photographs… in the late 1800s!" So, it was no surprise that when he considered winter, he thought about these "ephemeral crystalized jewels of the season." And, for David, "Everything after that was a natural progression from those forms." Part of the 4 Seasons Collection, the Winter Pendant served as the basis for this large-scale, custom version—a full 106" in width. A great example of how an existing design serves as inspiration for a custom variation to perfectly suit a vision.
A NOTE ABOUT OUR TRANSLUCENT FINISHES —Variations in finish appearances are a normal and desired result of the process, rendering each piece an individual and unique work of art. Shown here in Dark Smoke (-07) are examples of the different textures and patterns seen through our translucent finishes.
