Glass Sconce 006

Natalie Weinberger

Weinberger’s background in historic preservation is present in her informedness of age-old techniques such as pâte de verre. The results of this cumbersome process are unique, elegant panels of translucent glass, which have been fastened with custom hardware into wall sconces. The lights are abstract and sculptural, vaguely evoking flowers with translucent petals, a nod to the Art Nouveau period when a revival of pâte de verre flourished.

This light consists of one component, different to all others, that has a hint of gray coloring to the glass. This offers a unique light, especially as the larger layer contains brush-like grooves moving in an organic fashion from the center to the edges.
