Mala Pendant Light No. 5 in CopperMichele Varian Lighting
Inspired by Brancusi and modern, primitive design elements, these Mala “Bead” Pendants have a sculptural quality created by the simple geometic shapes and full hemispheres of the solid spun metal shades. Hang them alone or in groups of different configurations for a statement center-piece.
This Michele Varian pendant light is made by traditional artisans in Sarajevo which has a metalworking craft tradition going back over four centuries when it was part of the ottoman empire. Sheets of copper are spun on a lathe and drawn up by hand around custom-made wooden and metal molds to make them perfectly spherical. The wood “beads” are carved walnut.
