Barry Entner Tangent Glass and Metal Chandelier, 2016

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Contemporary American artist Barry Entner's "Tangent" Chandelier is comprised of clear textured solid glass sticks and a nickel plated steel frame. The canopy holds 5 LED round lights that shine down on the adjustable sticks as they orbit a 5"DIA steel globe. From the artist's perspective, sculptural lighting originates as a sculptural vision rather than a commercial product design. Suspending sculpture in midair allows him to create an unlimited array of forms free from the limitations of gravity. The lighting aspect is designed specifically to enhance the form, color and the magical beauty of the glass itself. He intentionally employs certain techniques to highlight the unique properties of glass. Each of Barry Entner's works has a life of its own due to visual shifts in form and color, which give the pieces movement. These effects are dependent on the perspective of the viewer and the amount of ambient light. Additional pieces of Barry Entner glass sculpture and lighting available through Highland Park, please contact the dealer for more information.

Barry Entner was born on November 1, 1959 in Brookline, Massachusetts. In the late 1970's, Barry attended Tulane University, New Orleans, Louisiana, where he studied developmental psychology, cultural anthropology and philosophy. He also began to study glass sculpture under Gene Koss.

After graduating from Tulane, Barry studied glass sculpture at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina with Stephen Dee Edwards and metal sculpture at Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, Massachusetts with John Wolfrum.

In 1985 he built his first studio outside of Boston. He has been working in his current studio in New York's Hudson Valley since 1997. Barry Entner's work is shown in museums, public spaces and private collections throughout the world.
