Commissioned Art

Lucite Balustrade – Commissioned Art

Commissioned balustrade for a client’s home in Wales.  The client requested the existing wooden balustrade to remain and be restored but to replace the wooden spindles with lucite.  Incorporating the lucite with the existing timber work proved quite a challenge but I do love how it has opened up the staircase and entrance hall.

The use of acrylic allows sunlight to play along the spindles length and refract a myriad of rainbow colours and when the sun goes down, artificial light dances across the surface of the highly polished spiral lucite, creating a mesmerising effect.  It’s lightweight, yet strong and shatterproof.

An ugly and dingy foyer has been transformed into an elegant and beautiful entrance.
