Found on the outer beach in Chatham on a bitterly cold January day, this driftwood tree turned chandelier has been a two and a half year long process. Having been brought in from the elements the tree took nearly 8 months to dry out, at which point I took bronze rub rails from an antique yacht and worked them with heat to bend and contour to the shape of the tree. Polished and engraved each one and carefully inset them using hand chisels and files. Once they were secured, the bronze was drilled through to accommodate the 16 light heads of the chandelier. Finished with cloth-wrapped driftwood grey wire and antique Edison bulbs, this piece is one-of-a-kind and will surely inspire and illuminate your next dinner party. There are multiple hanging options available and the artist will assist in choosing the best for your location.
Suspended driftwood with solid bronze, sanded and waxed, with 16 adjustable length Edison bulbs.
16' long x 5 1/2' wide and weighs about 125lbs
