A chandelier is a masterpiece made by an artisan
Posted: Oct 15, 2014
It is said that a beautiful chandelier can be bought at cheap price and it is right. You can buy an attractive ceiling lamp at pocket friendly price but it would be a machine made product. It won’t be the work of an artisan but a machine.
If you are looking for a classic crystal chandelier then look no further than an artifact. Buy it from an artisan and not from a machine manufacturer. There are artisans that still work with hands and produce ceiling lamps of amazing designs. You can find a beautiful light for your needs on the shop of an artisan or you can request the artisan to customize a light for your needs.
Making of a ceiling light
Making ceiling lamps is the job of an artisan. The artisan takes design ideas from pages of history and also from modern life and style. In case of a classic piece, the artisan would take the idea from earlier designs like Empire and Baroque.
Empire style was popular in 1800s. It was developed in France and the idea for developing Empire style came from the excavation of Roman city of Pompeli that got buried in the lava of the Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Baroque style was developed in late 1600s and it is one of the earliest chandeliers produced.
The idea is developed into a new design. Here it is necessary to mention that the idea is developed and not copied. Artisans have to look somewhere to get ideas. There is no harm in redesigning classic style lamps to suit to modern needs. But it is only an experienced artisan that can redesign a lamp.
Lamp designing involves physical work and also the artisans have to work with high heat. Glass bars are melted in glass furnace to make prisms and the prisms are made with hands. Similarly frame for making light is prepared with a metal preferably brass. A team of artisans take a couple of days to produce a ceiling lamp.
