Grand Light is set to restore two outdoor light fixtures from the front gate of the well-known Attica Correctional Facility. The maximum security prison, built in 1931, has held some of the country's most dangerous inmates including Mark David Chapman, Willie "The Actor" Sutton, Kendall Francois, and Colin Ferguson.
The Yale Calhoun College lighting restoration project continues with the recent completion of six polished brass wall sconces and a matching chandelier. With many of the outdoor fixtures completed, attention now turns to the large, two-tier chandeliers and the remaining wall sconces.
Grand Light was recently contacted by a client who wanted to replicate a chandelier that he had seen in Europe. Using a picture he had provided as inspiration, Grand Light's artisans sketched out their interpretation of what the new chandelier will look like.
Please have a look below to see the photo of the original chandelier, along with our shop drawings which will serve as a blueprint for production of the replication.
