You’ve heard us talk about this collection before. We’re extremely excited about it! We’re changing the face of contemporary ceramics, and these pendants are the culmination of six years of work.
The Chrysalis Collection stood as the centerpiece of the exhibition of the Luminary Craft Exhibition in August of 2019. Asheville resident and world-renowned musician Jonathan Scales indulged patrons with the ambient sound of steel drums. His rhythmic music would be a perfect complement to the red, green and blue synchronized light show.
Our founder Nick Moen unintentionally moved to Asheville when his van broke down in the Wedge Brewing parking lot years ago, so this exhibition, located at the Wedge, really felt like a full circle moment for him.
Jefferson Ellison curated the event, making sure the art was perfectly placed and everyone felt welcome. He thought the Cloud Room was the perfect spot to hold this event, and we agree. We really wanted to show the lighting in its natural habitat — in use, surrounded by great vibes, good people, and intentional design.
“Celebrating local artists who have a connection to the community and creating custom lighting pieces for the event is so authentic to the brand, because it represents the core of what the Bright Angle offers: craftsmanship,” Ellison said. “It’s great for Asheville, but it’s also just great for the design community as a whole.”
