“The effect I wanted to create was one of floating, overlapping, white planes,” explains Lindsey Adelman of her Porcelain Branching chandelier. “To me the raw porcelain forms have a quality of peaceful vulnerability. Each one is a little wavy and obviously not made by a machine. They are usually arranged on the same level below the branching metal armature and the halogen bulbs can be pumped up to produce a very functional light bouncing off the ceiling or a low moody light.”

The piece is also available in a black porcelain version, producing a very different effect.
