Ely Chandelier




H 74 cm W 48 cm D 48 cm


Glass and steel




'Ely Chandelier' is a unique light by the British artist, Stewart Hearn.

Having relocated to Chatteris in the Cambridgeshire Fens, Hearn visited the ‘Ship of the Fens', a colloquial expression for Ely Cathedral.

Magnificent in design, its dramatic architecture was the inspiration for this chandelier. Towering columns are majestically transformed with light patterns that emanate from its stained glass windows, casting colours evoking a giant moving canvas. It was this transient beauty that Hearn aimed to capture.

Hanging from an internal steel framework which imitates the lead lines of these stained glass windows, 62 free blown glass droplets can be hung and moved around at will. Each one is two-tone in colour to create a varied spectrum of hues, all internally lit by 12 LED lights.

Weight: 25kg

Colours available: aqua, lime and smoke which can be mixed and matched as desired.

The artist can also create pieces to commission, please contact the gallery for further information.
