Story behind

“The daily walks with my dog Chilly are a frequent source of inspiration for me. On one of my recent rambles across the countryside, I watched flocks of migrating birds. They were flying in formations which, as I learnt later, are not a matter of coincidence but have their rules. I bow before the magic and power of nature, which is why I captured a flying flock in a large lighting object.

We decided to use flat fused glass in dark grey to closely mimic the natural appearance of birds in flight, even though it is not traditionally used in lighting objects. Using water jet cutting to achieve the desired shape, we then fused the glass in a glass kiln to create the movement of the individual birds.” … Katarína Kotuláčová, Sans Souci Designer
