Bespoke Wavy Springvale Pendant Light

When a client requests something really interesting, we struggle to say no. Always up for a challenge here at the forge, a project we completed a few years ago for a customer who wanted a variation on our Springvale pendant light. This 'wavy' pendant was bespoke to allow the hand blown glass shades to sit over a large dining table in this beautiful property with high ceilings throughout. We made a number of pieces for the customer and it's always good working with people with a creative vision and trust in the process to come up with something unique.
