Nearly 300 handcrafted dripping icicles fabricated entirely from graduating sizes of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS suspend from a perforated steel trough-shaped fixture body suggesting, naturally, a roof gutter. Water drops materialize from below the icicles and dangle almost imperceptibly by way of micro stainless steel thread. In keeping with water pressure®’s signature style, spring thaw’s icicles emerge directly from the fixture body, suspended not with conventional support apparatus, but simply by crystal beads themselves cradled inside the steel perforations.
Also being introduced with the new design is a double LED light strip providing more illumination, and with the capability of dimming by way of remote-controlled key fob for those who might be gadgetry inclined. Hidden discreetly behind the crystal icicles, the LED strip exudes a true daylight color temperature to further imply realism of the piece.
“I think there’s a great appreciation for both the inspiration and execution behind artistic pieces like this versus mass-produced chandeliers. People can identify with the imagery our fixtures depict. I mean, what child in us hasn’t at some point in their lives been amazed by masses of big drippy icicles hanging off the roof of their house? OK, so maybe just us Northerners…”
