Cast Iron And Steel Light Fixture
This striking piece was inspired by Edison style filament bulbs and began with 19th Century cast iron decorative panels in the rare "raindrop" pattern. The panels were carefully cut to size, then laboriously cleaned, buffed, polished and clear coated with a deep gloss finish.
A custom welded steel surround was fabricated, finish ground, hand filed and sanded, then patinaed to match and clear coated in a lustrous satin. The fixture hangs from braided, patinaed cable and period correct rayon wrapped lamp cord.
