PROCESS + MATERIALS
Structure and finials: Hand carved forms cast in recycled aluminum-magnesium alloy, hand polished, rubbed with elixirs to patina the metal surface. Glass: hand blown glass: deep oxblood lip wrap, warm crystal, warm white interior. This piece is unique: the glass for each lamp is handmade and varies from piece to piece as illustrated in the photos.
This lamp was created when Jordan Mozer + Associates Ltd was commissioned to design Nectar Restaurant for the opening of the Bellagio Resort Hotel in Las Vegas. Indigenous pre-Columbian Southwestern construction in which columns were formed by branching tree trunks presented an initial concept for this American Grill. The branching motif was used throughout the design of the project. The artist and his wife refer to this lamp as the Twin's Twig Lamp as their twins were born just before it was realized.
