Recently, I have been helping my friend and fellow blacksmith Daniel Hopper with a large chandelier project.
These pieces are forged pipe that have been bent in a press to follow the armature on the floor. When assembled, the pipe conceals the electrical wires leading to the bulbs.
Sadly, the chalk grid that we drew on the floor for proper registration has worn away. It was a work of art in itself.
This is one of two for a private residence somewhere in Nebraska.
