Chandelier Preliminary Sketch
This is a preliminary sketch of a chandelier for a client. I thought I would share with you one of the commissions I am currently working on. After communicating with client about her desires for a chandelier, some of the revealed points of interest to use in the design for the chandelier are; curvilinear/nature theme, leaves which will tie into a double tree trunk dining table design which will be under the chandelier, and the leaf design will also be incorporated into the railings which are in the same room. Now that I know that the client loves this design, I will be adding further details to show the actual light fixture, and lighting which will be added to the lower cluster of individual leaves.
