Custom Lighting Creation....

"The Chimes" Custom lighting project combining metal and glass is by far my biggest accomplishment to date... The hand blown Tradition clear borosilicate glass pieces, mirrored stainless steel , Powder coat metal framework and silver fumed lighting covers are the main highlights on this massive one of a kind lighting project.

Pictured above is a close up of Braden Hammond's custom made silver fume lighting covers.

The installation........

I decided to call this custom lighting project "The Chimes" because during the installation process the glass pieces would chime together whenever the metal frame was unintentionally moved. The sound of hundreds of individual pieces of glass ringing together is amazing!!!

Custom Lighting Projects by Braden Hammond

Custom lighting projects created by Braden Hammond are one of a kind glass art sculptures that will illuminate your home, business or gallery. Over the next couple weeks I will be posting behind the scenes content from my latest installation "Chimes". The Chimes project took over one year to complete. Our concept was to take traditional style clear glass pieces and incorporate them into a modern metal or steel art sculpture. This mixed media project was installed in a private residence in Oakville Ontario Canada January 2009. Please click on the link to view more pictures of my Custom lighting projects.
