One of my clients came back from her vacation in Morocco with a sack full of teapots. I had already made her four fixtures from flex conduit and funnels. She asked if I could make her a chandelier from her bag of pots. This is what I came up with.
There are 25 teapots in two tiers. Five on the top and ten on the bottom. They each have a 20w equivalent, bi-pin LED, in the lid. The bottoms are cut open. The wires are collected in two custom copper wire pots. They are connected via two plumbing fittings soldered together. The lower tier of tea pots are attached to a copper band that has five hollow spoke that go back the the wire pot. The finish is a hand oxidized and rubbed copper. The teapots are made of brass with some sort of plated finish on them. I fabricated a series of small brass brackets that hold the handles tight against the band. Those are the sort of details that make this all so fun.
