Every item is made one at a time by Craig Carey. There are no pre-bought patterns or items, save the hardwear and mirror, and all ideas are their own. Craig starts with raw materials, such as discarded Christmas trees for lamps and chandeliers, willow from the edges of ponds for mirrors and signs, and lumber from anywhere that he can find it, and then carves or cuts everything by hand. Then all items are sanded, primed and painted or stained. The stained items then get multiple coats of lacquer for a deep shine.
If the work looks familiar, you may have seen it in Neiman-Marcus, Better Homes and Gardens, House Beautiful, Metropolitan Home, etc.
THIS STYLE OF CHANDELIER IS NO LONGER MADE BY CRAIG. I'M KEEPING THE PHOTO UP AS A "SPACE SAVER" FOR THE NEW STYLE. NEW STYLE HAS 6 BIRDS BUT CENTER IS NO LONGER MADE FROM A TREE.
OK - confessions first. The very nice photo is Craig's. The rest are mine, and of the actual fixture we have at the gallery. As it sits in the holding box, it measures 22" tall and about 24" wide. There are 6 individual birds perched on copper branches.
Come on in to see it in person. We could ship = but it will cost a bizillion dollars, or at least $75. If you are seriously interested, we'll get an estimate for you. Just "Contact Us."
