This chandelier will be in the kitchen of the house I am planning to build. It is made of brass and oxidized black, hopefully it looks aged. The four arms were pierced out of brass and the center was turned on a Unimat. Yes, I can wire it.

Francis Whittemore blew the white shade and chimney for me. Thankfully, I still have a lot of the glass he made for me.


  1. Welcome to the land of 'Blog'....I think it is right to say, once you have started a blog your life is never quite the same.
    I look forward to many many more posts.

    Enjoy, Linda

  2. Hello Catherine, Linda Carwsell told me about your blog. The fact that you are an artist and a METALSMITH certainly got my attention!!!! And that little lamp does not disappoint. I'm very much looking forward to seeing more of your work. As Linda said 'Welcome the the land of 'Blog' - you are certainly very welcome here, and believe me, it's true, your life will never be the same - in a nice way!! :)

  3. Thank you ladies for the warm welcome!!!
    I look forward to making new friends and the promised life changes blogging brings.

  4. Just as Norma wrote, when I read in your profile you're a metalsmith, that definitely got my attention. I am very much looking forward to seeing your miniatures here. The lamp is beautiful.

  5. Hello Catherine - welcome to blogging! I've had a blog for less than four weeks and already it's been amazing in terms of seeing what people make and do, and being a part of a thriving miniatures community online. It's very welcoming and friendly.
    Your metalwork certainly is interesting and extremely well made! Looking forward to seeing more.

  6. A very warm welcome to you Josje and Glenda!
    Thank you for your kind comments about my work. I am ejoying seeing all the things you both make on your blogs. :-)

  7. The details are impeccable. And somebody made the glass pieces... Oh my. I am so thrilled to just see it. Thanks much for sharing.

  8. That's a really neat lamp there! I just discovered your blog but have myself to blame. I have been out of running this past spring and summer. But its so cool to see new artisans around. Your work looks very detailed and in proportion. I'm gonna stroll a bit further. Pleased to meet you.
