Our Grain Drum is anchored in traditional drum-making techniques. The pendant's fabrication manages to give the final fixture a feel that is both refined and organic.
Maple boards are arranged vertically to form a circle, glued, clamped, then lathed to achieve a smooth round shell. This shell is then sandblasted to raise the natural wood grain pattern of the maple boards, so that the texture is imparted on the metal shade during spinning.
The book matched grain on the interior of the Grain Drum provides the amazing impression of the lifespan of a tree.
The Grain Drum is available in 14", 25" and 33" configurations. Illuminated by three bulbs concealed under a wood grain reflector, the view from below a Grain Drum is reminiscent of standing under an eclipse.
