The starting point for this design was a bespoke wall light for a yacht, designed by Jack Canning. The original object was wall-mounted as a sconce but the electric cord hung loosely from the ceiling and connected at the top of the sphere. As such the design was a bit of a hybrid right from the start. The resulting object is now considered a modular element that can be used on itself as a sconce, pendant or whatnot or combined with more siblings to create larger constellations like rings, clouds or columns.
The basic elements of the sphere are brass rings holding a hand-cut crystal octagon. These are soldered together at odd angles creating a perfect sphere. The gaps and irregularities are part result of the construction and specific design element of this fixture.
