The Distinctive Character of Textured Glass

The use of glass in light fixtures has been popular for so long that it’s barely worth mentioning as a ‘trend.’ However, add a new wrinkle to the glass and you experience a whole different level of design ingenuity. The designers at Hudson Valley Lighting and Corbett Lighting have each introduced products that make use of innovative glass-blowing techniques to produce fixtures of extraordinary beauty. Here are a few of their newest offerings for your editorial consideration:

  • The cascading, icicle-like curls of Mont Blanc’s handmade Venetian glass offer a stunning display of light
  • Clustered together by handcrafted iron arcs, no two individual textured glass rods look the same, contributing to the organic, icy feel of the piece
  • Horizontally patterned silver leaf trim adds a sense of motion when viewing the dazzling pendant, giving the viewer a different perspective from any angle
  • Collection offered as a thirteen-, nine- or seven-light pendant, a two- or three-light sconce and a five-light semi-flush
