Cymbidium chandelier by Jeremy Cole.

The traditional chandelier is reinterpreted by award-winning ceramicist, Jeremy Cole, as a collection of beautiful potted Cymbidium orchids mounted on a suspended ring and lit from within.

Each object is intricately handcrafted using porcelain ceramics to capture the flowers’ detail and essence. Three discreetly hidden bulbs inside the vessels illuminate the stems of the orchids, transforming the arrangement from a ceramic object into a stunning light piece. jeremycole.net
