28 Copper

A flexible copper suspension option is available for all 28 pendants, providing a different compositional reading and a range of sculptural forms.

Technical Specs

28 is formed by creating a conventional glass-blown sphere and allowing it to cool, then using a blowtorch to create a hot patch on the circumference. A different colour of super-hot glass is dropped into the heated exterior patch and air is pulled out of the piece – creating a vacuum inside the original sphere, to which only the very hot, recently introduced glass can respond in a controlled implosion. The result is a slightly distorted sphere with an interior landscape of satellite shapes, including an opaque milk glass diffuser that houses either a low-voltage xenon or LED lamp.

The copper will weather and tarnish, registering the passage of time in its patina.

Standard 28 pendants are made with clear glass exterior spheres and milk white diffusers. Custom 28s can be crafted in near-infinite colour variations. Due to the handcrafted nature of this piece, the size, colour depth, tonality, and both number and location of interior satellites will vary.
