a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Esther Patterson, the founder of Curiousa & Curiousa designs hand-blown, bespoke glass and bone china lighting.
Her new collection features a range of lighting products using colourful milk glass and bone china materials creating eye-catching bespoke pieces for a range of clients including interior designers, architectural practices and private individuals.
Some of her work includes the Isabel Chandelier which is a mix of pastel milk glass with bone china and glass stems. The Globe Table Lamp, in canary yellow and cranberry are semi-opaque glass globes that nestle on table tops.
The Triptych Chandelier Collection is inspired by Moroccan architecture and features multi-coloured glass with contrasting walnut disks, stacked to create three sculptural pendant lights.
Orb Light, now available in a new colourway, is a bubble shaped light inspired by the psychedelia style, combining retro glass colours to create a 60s look.
The glass pendant range offers a wide choice of colour, shape and size providing shades from 130mm to 330mm in diameter, complimented with a selected range of finishes, fittings, flexes and bulbs. Each shade is traditionally free-blown without moulds, allowing virtually any shape, size and colour to be achieved.
