A graceful surround of hand-poured art glass entices you to contemplate the beauty of this pendant. Each of the textured glass panels is unique — handmade by the Vermont-based artisans at AO Glass.
“Glass is obviously the focus of the Solstice, and was from the beginning when we first looked at the small hand poured samples from AO Glass that caught the light in an interesting way,” Paul Marr-Hilliard, Designer at Hubbardton Forge explained about the luxuriusly thick, hand-poured glass. “Through experimentation of form and scale, we landed on a distinct shape that combines both organic and precise features at the same time. The beauty of the glass’ irregularities and chill marks gives evidence of its handmade origin and the robust steel tooling we built to create the form, as it catches the light of the LED light source that illuminates both the glass and the space that it is hung in.” The Solstice is available as both a single and two-tiered Pendant, as well as a wall sconce fixture.
