Gourd Bar Chandelier by Tracy Glover

Ah, yes, the ubiquitous gourd. Seems that at this time of year we see them everywhere: from front porches to window sills, dining centerpieces to driver’s dashboards.

Ok, I made up that last one but you get the point. Given our current preponderance of gourds, it’s nice to see a new iteration with a wholly different color palette: Tracy Glover’s Gourd Bar chandelier offers an enchanting assortment of blown glass pendants, with inky streaks of color and hung all in a mesmerizing row.

Each pendant features Glover’s trademark “dipped” effect for a gradation from transparent to translucent. Colors include celadon, persimmon, latte, and tourmaline, all with an antique Brass finish. And they’re hung from hand-knotted ropes.

The overall look is minimalist but elegant, rustic but contemporary, definitely chic but also with just a tinge of shabby.
