I love the challenge of making colors in my commissioned painted glass chandeliers work with my client's rooms. This piece is for a couple of dear friends who are also important figures in my local artist community. Betty's room has a very pale blue color, along with soft greens, yellows and rust colors. The couple collect pear and partridge themed sculptures and since that has been such a central theme in their decor, not to mention symbolic in their lives, it went without saying that their chandelier had to reflect the pear and partridge theme.

The challenge was also to create a piece that worked with the colors of their foyer, which are unusual and yet come off lovely. There is a single partridge bird on the other side and the white flowers were inspired by pear blossoms. The blue going around the right edge is exactly the color of the blue of their room. When I took this piece to them to view, it matched and complimented it's designated space beautifully.

I cannot wait to see this beautiful glass painted chandelier installed. It is titled, of course, Partridge and the Pear Tree. Happy 50th, Betty and Jack!
