Siemon & Salazar
The Emblem worked with Carmen Salazar, an American sculptor, metalworker, architect, botanist, and scavenger, to find the perfect sconces for our restaurant, George Prime Steak. Attracted to Salazar’s dedication to the hybrid of urban and rural and to her love of experimentation, we chose a set of her Bubble Square Elbow Sconces.
Hand blown, shaped in lead free crystal and classically inspired, the bubble sconces came to life when Salazar began exploring the use of glass with no added elements in order to create different light patterns. Whipping (or frothing) the glass at a high speed creates the thousands of little bubbles that refract the light and create a sparkly effect in the sconces. Each piece is unique.
