The glass pendant range offers a wide choice of colour, shape and size providing shades from 130mm to 330mm in diameter, complimented with a selected range of finishes, fittings, flexes and bulbs. Each shade is traditionally free-blown without moulds, allowing virtually any shape, size and colour to be achieved.
