Medusa Fuoco Ruby Red Murano Glass Chandelier in the Style of Dale Chihuly

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This exceptional Fuoco chandelier was handcrafted from Murano glass in Santo Stefano di Camastra on the Mediterranean sea. It features an explosion of contorting tubular forms, reminiscent of the abundance of snakes crowning Medusa's head. Each glass tube is individually handblown then reattached to the central brass body. With its myriad twisting forms, this fixture closely resembles a mobile by Dale Chihuly, one of the world's most esteemed contemporary artists working in blown glass. The chandelier is attached to a circular brass base by a brass rod, whose height can be adjusted to suit. The fixture accomodates fourteen Edison bulbs, providing as much as 1400 watts of power, enough to brilliantly illuminate any space. It has been completely rewired and is in excellent condition.
