I made the first Chandelier in 1992 for the Seattle Art Museum . It was a big show, the entire second floor, and there was an area that wasn’t working. At the last minute I had the glassblowers start making a very simple shape—one of the easiest forms one can blow. It is also strong and simple, and I knew it would hang well. I put ten or fifteen blowers on the project, and we made it in a few days and then hung it immediately in the museum without first making a mock-up. It was a little risky, but I was very confident. I put a large black granite table, eight by eight feet, under the piece to keep viewers back and to have a reflection.
