Aluminum Chandelier

| | | | | |

Hi all, I finally finished a chandelier I have been working on for a long time. It's 48" in Diameter and about 40" tall and is fabricated out of Aluminum tubing and sheet with the leaves created using Fold Forming and a custom made chain. Every single piece was custom made. It has dimming incandescent lights and blue LED lights on two different switches so you can vary the look. It was a huge learning experience figuring out how to create a light that looked great, could function as it was supposed to, and could be maintained/repaired without using a plasma torch, in fact, many pieces were made at least two times as i foresaw hurdles in replacing lights, wiring, etc. I can't wait to do another one, especially since I've muscled out most of the pitfalls.

Annual Summer Fold Form Conference with Charles Lewton-Brain

| | |

4th Annual Fold Form Conference with Charles Lewton-Brain at the Center for Metal Arts in downstate NY July 21-24, 2011--two memorable days of face-time with Charles Lewton-Brain at the work bench, demonstrating all eight families of fold forms plus many variations. T-folds, cross folds, pleated folds, woven folds, sheared and formed star folds, chased wedge t-folds, Plunkett folds, and more. Charles is generous with his knowledge, so bring your questions, a sketchpad—and a camera.

This is a Copper Lily that I made by using the foldforming technique. This was the first time that I have tried this.
