Help Oakland Artist Daniel Hopper Craft this ChandelierAuthor:Lindsey Shook
One of the most inspiring pieces we saw in 2011 was the enormous steel chandelier flickering with 75 oil lamps that Oakland-based blacksmith Daniel Hopper created for a San Francisco home.
Hopper is known for his innumerable nature-inspired candleholders at the James Beard Award-winning Slanted Door restaurant and other San Francisco hotspots. Now, the modern blacksmith has been offered a coveted space in SF showroom Coup D’Etat to hang an electrified version of that same steel chandelier. Hopper is tackling the large project with the help of the local community, asking members to help fund the project. Once the piece is done showing in the Coup D’Etat space, Hopper plans to donate it to a community space. Meaning: this may just be your chance to own (at least a part of) one of Hopper’s insanely beautiful pieces.
He’s still $6,000 away from his goal. Click here to donate.
