This hanging light fixture is the newest design in my on-going recycled wine bottle light series. This is only my second pendant light. I think I was subconsciously influenced by ceramic vases by Teco. The bottle has been sandblasted, and the plywood was shaped on a bandsaw. The three plywood wings are held together by a brass spider that I fabricated and screwed on the top of all three segments of the spider. I had to incorporate some store bought lamp supplies, and I used an energy efficient 2 watt LED light bulb that does an excellent job of illuminating the bottle.
About Kevin Sutton
While earning a MFA from Pratt Institute, Kevin's areas of focus was equally divided between painting and sculpture. The common thread was a love of color, light and process. The lamps are an extension of these interests, while also expressing his concern for the environment. A admiration for the Arts and Crafts movement, their reaction against an increasingly technological society, and their commitment to the marriage of form and fuction had a huge influence on his creative philosophy.
