We loved sudden summer afternoon thunderstorms while growing up. There''s nothing quite so relaxing as seeing and hearing the rain pelt against the window panes and on the tin roof (rusted!). To recreate the impression of beads of rain upon a window, we hand press the recycled glass. Recycled glass raindrops complete the design downpour. The Rainy Night finish is made from streaking an eggplant-black glaze over silver. Hammered Ore is also now available as a standard finish for more rustic settings.
Purchased to hang over our new, "100 yr old reclaimed wood" from Great Britain, trestle 84" dining table (that extends to 120"). We wanted something that would be a contrast to the unfinished, heavy, old wood planks. And, something that would be just as substantial. This works perfectly! A bit industrial with the plain metal frame and adjustable cable wire. A bit glamorous with the bubbly, streaky rain glass...each pane is unique!
The ONLY thing that I don't care for would be the electrical cord from the fixture to the ceiling is obvious. It can be affixed to one of the 4 cables from the fixture to the ceiling. But, it shows. For this, I am deducting 1/2 star (for some reason, it will only allow me to give full star ratings). I rate this light 4.5 stars!
Note: A few of the glass panes did arrive with some very, very fine scrolling scratches. The shipping packaging was fantastic, so I think the scratches were pre-packing. I contacted Customer Service to see about getting those few panes replaced. "NOT A PROBLEM!", was the response. Within 5 days, I had the replacement panes in hand! Awesome Customer Service! Awesome response time!
