If you are considering remodeling your kitchen and ready to try something completely new, using blown glass pendant lights will transform your ordinary kitchen into extraordinary and unique.
Hand blown glass pendant lights are one-of-a-kind, and come in many colors, shapes and styles to choose from. For instance, for wine lovers out there who are looking for wine-themed decor, this Bordeaux Pendant light was inspired by the shape of the Bordeaux wine bottle.
The artist skillfully crafted deep red wine liquid-like colors with fire-like hues, and random variations occur in the swirled pattern. Imagine this above your kitchen island where everyone gathers, it will really add to the entertaining atmosphere!
One reason blown glass pendant lights add unique flair to your kitchen is the different visual effect when it is lit compared to unlit. In most pendant lights, colors in the glass transform from what look like dark, opaque tones when unlit. Then when you flip the light switch, the pendant’s colors seem lighter and reveal a unique and multi-dimensional eye-catching glow. This Limited Edition Lemuria Hand Blown Glass Pendant Light is a perfect example, in this case, of blues, greens and browns mystically convert to yellows, oranges and reds when lit.
The artist attains these magnificent color combinations through knowing their design and chemistry, as well as using very rich and consistent colored glass rods that have been specially developed for glass blowers. A very reliable and trustworthy source such as Olympic Color Rods in Seattle, Washington, has thousands of colors for artists to make their selections from, to create that perfect color recipe shown here.
Another inspiring blown glass pendant lights illustration is the Steel Blue Tiny Bubbles Blown-glass Pendant Light. It features small air pockets captured in the glass in uniform rows, adding drama and a bit of mystery. You can’t help but stop and appreciate the craftsmanship and wonder what it took to make those little bubbles so nicely spaced throughout the glass. This comes in four color options: Topaz, Magenta, Hyacinth and Steel Blue, to blend nicely or stand out in your kitchen’s color-scheme, depending on your personal preference.
Adding to the uniqueness is how every pendant is never exactly alike in pattern – slight variations occur during the hand blowing process.
For placement, hang pendants in a set of two or three over your kitchen island or bar counter, or a single pendant over the sink. Position the pendant high enough to be out of your way, but low enough to be able to admire the artisan work that went into creating your unique piece. You’ll be delighted to what beauty the pendant light brings to your kitchen space.
