In 2004 I was asked to design chandeliers and wall sconces for the grill at Crater Lake National Park in Oregon. The original drawings were for a chandelier 6 feet wide and 7 feet tall. The customer decided to scale back the size but it still looks dramatic hanging from the high pitched rafters. Due to the size of the fixture I didn't want it to appear too heavy. This was accomplished by having an open frame work cross through the center of the fixture and having the light illuminate from the center as well as the bottom and the sides. The frame is made of hammered forged steel with solid brass cast pine cones gracing the corners.
