The Orbit chandelier is inspired by the movement of the galaxy’s moons around their planets. Its central feature is a bronze half-sphere, with a polished concave interior and rough patinated exterior that has been applied with blue pigment. Shining the light on the two different surfaces presents dramatically different results. Jesse’s collectible design work for Southern Guild, inspired by all things lunar-related, is the outcome of a long process of experimentation with aluminium smelting. Orbit marks his transition into bronze and brass and the introduction of colour, which adds a new dimension to his work.
