The new Galatia collection of scalloped faux mercury glass pendants has been introduced by Meyda Custom Lighting, a Meyda Tiffany Company and a leading designer and manufacturer of custom lighting and décor. (The glass does not contain mercury.)
Meyda bends each individual glass panel in a high-fire kiln and then implements a special finishing process that features a faux mercury finish, which is applied to antique seedy glass backing. The result is a glass color and texture highlighted by a unique, distressed mirror look.
For a specific look, designers and end users can select from a variety of hardware styles, finishes and glass colors including Turn-Knob Hardware for a traditional look, Neutral Beige Iridescent glass with black wire for transitional, and Confetti glass with Braided Silver cable for modern.
The collection is handcrafted in the company’s manufacturing facility in Yorkville, N.Y.
