About Drape Composition 2 Pendant
Glass shaped by hand
The glass shapes of the Drape Composition 2 Pendant are formed by hand, allowing them to be slightly imperfect to express their handmade origins. The “dipped” glass options feature an irregular, open mouth, created by double-dipping the piece into the molten glass crucible, followed by breaking the piece from the pipe and fire-polishing the opening – a purposeful expression of craft and the act of glassblowing. The “textured” glass diffusers have no opening. Their surface is frosted and features a subtle pattern of lines etched into the glass for a moody and classic look.
The addition of the third pendant and its new geometric shape – a flattened ellipsoid vs. a sphere – elevates the Drape Composition 2 with even more possibilities. These precomposed Drape “composition” lights are smaller multi-pendants that are more ready to perform with space, having been thought out by the SkLO design team.
The possibilities of simplicity
The Drape collection is an investigation into the potential behind the idea of a simple cord-suspended glass pendant that displays the quality and variation of SkLO handblown glass. It begins, necessarily, with the basic Drape Pendant itself. But from there, minimal additions are made – opportunities to enhance the structure, scale, and design of the diverse series comprising the Drape collection, including the Drape Circle, Drape Arm, Drape Skirt, and many more.
