DIAMANTINA is a gem-like old hilltop village in Brazil famed for quartz crystal clusters considered since ancient times to have cosmic connections and psychic healing powers. Inspired by nature, Fine Art Lamps master glass artist Frank Englesby has created a collection of lighting as wondrous and unique as nature itself.
Building on glass techniques over 2000 years old, and using the core element of natural quartz, the spires are worked by hand at over 2000 degrees. The raw crystal spires are then rough cut and hand polished to expose the inner core to light. As in the natural world each piece is distinctly unique. All are lit with a state of the art high efficacy dimmable LED, except for the inverted parasol which contains a dozen incandescent candelabra lights. The effect of all when lit is wonderful.
