Jacques Jarrige

"Fiori" 7-lights , 2012
Hand Hammered Aluminum
29 x 29 x 29 in
A smaller version of Jarrige's "Fiori" chandeliers. Made out of aluminium with 7 lights. Inspired by Karl Blossfeldt’s photographs of flora, the chandelier is cut from one sheet of aluminum, then twisted and hammered by hand, without discarding any of the material. The result is a piece that seems to be in movement, as if it were growing like roots or a tree. Each is unique and signed.
