Colorful metal pendant lamps

Babette Holland shows her spun-aluminum pendant lamps in Las Vegas at the 2009 HD Show presented by Hospitality Design. Babette Holland will be showing these pendant lamps at the HD (Hospitality Design) Show in Las Vegas later this month. She's known for her colorful lamps, mirrors, vases and metal pottery, all done in spun metal.
She talks about her process: "The material we use is aluminum and it’s handspun - think of throwing a pot, sideways, and the motion of spinning metal resembles a slow, rocking dance. Our shapes are so complex they can only be made one piece at a time, by hand, and by a master spinner. Each piece is made using multiple chucks (forms) and the spinning is done in many stages."
