I completely rebuilt and rewired this antique chandelier and altered the design by turning the arms upside down. I then drilled and threaded brass cups to accept the wine bottle neck that is held in place with three thumb screws. I bought some electrical parts needed to extend the sockets down into the bottle to obtain the best position of the bulb to illuminate the bottle. The bulbs are LED – Filament Type – 2 Watt – Chandelier Bulb – 40 Watt Equal – 2200K Warm Glow – Dimmable – Amber Tinted. I might sandblast the bottles for a frosted effect.
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.
