Artful Wall Sconces Burst with Brilliant Color

Italian artist and accessory designer, Hans Peter Neidhardt is crazy talented. In his Venice-based studio, he creates beautifully illuminated and colorful wall sconces by using a 500 year old master glassblowing technique called incalmo. This technique allows Neidhardt to combine two or more glass “cups” that are connected while hot creating horizontal bands of colorful blown glass. He combines the incalmo with various colored glass patterns (murrines) to make his incredible wall sconces and other wall lighting designs.

Neidhardt’s color-infused wall lamps look lovely hung on either side of a large oval or rectangular mirror in a bath or a powder room. Their brilliant uplighting gives a warm ambience to any space and their fine art design make for a great conversation piece.
