Clear glass is combined with transparent glass pigment then blown into a segmented mold to create ridges around a bubble of air. When the bubble is expanded by blowing, the ridges form thicker and thinner bands. Light passing through the bands accentuates the variation in the color saturation, providing these shades their distinctive character.
The entire Mirage Pendant Collection features four shapes, Teardrop-5, Spindle, Teardrop-7 and Oval. As a single fixture or in a group, the designs fit well in a variety of settings, over a sink or vanity as well as in a stairwell or entry. The glass shades are available in five colors, Ice, Smoke, Ember, Ocean and Tea. The dimensions of the shades vary due to the hand-crafted nature of the glass. The cord length is customizable to fit clients’ specifications, and the fixtures accommodate a 60 watt max bulb and an LED option is available.
The Mirage Pendants are available in rubbed bronze or brushed nickel finishes. Prices vary by shape and finish. A ceiling plate/canopy measures 5-inches in diameter and is available in oil rubbed bronze or brushed nickel.
Metro Lighting fixtures are available at their showroom in Berkeley, Calif., or online.
