rope grown lighting

Here's a piece of design inspired by the natural world; a gorgeous twist on the traditional chandelier by British glass artist Heather Gillespie.

The work which I have created for my new collection titled ‘Rope Grown’ is influenced by the fishing trade and the impact it has on our environment. Seeing mussels and oysters being grown on coconut handmade rope gave me the inspiration to create this body of work to make people aware of this sustainable way of sea fishing. The texture of the oyster shell is unique, robust and in some species they may even produce beautiful pearls.
