The Musical Chandelier
The Musical Chandelier brings art-deco into a world of sensory experience. When still, the chandelier is silent. Movement causes the chandelier to come to life into an orchestra of jingles and chimes. Each layer of this completely handmade five-layered chandelier holds a different sound producer; the “ding” of recycled glass specimen jar bells, the “clink” of the brass jingle bells, the dual-toned chime of forged tuning forks, the sound of a river from recycled sticks and the jingles of spoon heads. Each piece on the chandelier is handcrafted from recycled and found materials, as well as the frame itself. The frame forms a flower, and the ornaments act as if dropping dew. When the sound chimes, the sounds collide into a meditative sound once related to “earth”.
