A Portfolio of Custom Lighting Fixtures by Odell Golomb
Odell Golomb is a glass artist based in Israel, who uses her glasswork talents to create beautiful custom lighting fixtures. Odell’s light fixtures are produced with an awareness toward the therapeutic qualities of crystal.
I really enjoy the way that Odell combines glass and crystal in her fixtures. It’s interesting to see the parallels and contrasts between these natural and man-made forms. Both glass and crystal have an organic, biological feel to them, and the way Odell works the glass seems to emphasize the beauty in imperfection and randomness. The fixtures are designed to allow light to diffuse through the glass and onto the crystals below, creating a beautifully warm aura.
In her wall-hanging chandeliers, Odell demonstrates great attention to detail, packing each fixture with numerous crystal formations, beads, and custom-made glass elements. The pieces cast a light that’s filtered through many different colours and textures, for an extraordinary result.
