Made to reference the thunderous, malevolent, darkly beautiful Lake Michigan during a thunderstorm. Thick gray fearsome clouds tumbling above and deep murky waters swirling below. Stormy, rich turquoises, blues, grays and blacks swirl together on this garland, punctuated by bits of sunny gold, which is maybe sunlight poking through the clouds or gleams of wrecked ships below the waves.
DETAILING ON THIS STRAND:
Several lanterns throughout have striped brushstroke detailing in black and dark gray, with a wide variation in color hue and saturation.
Each lantern is painted by hand with gouache, watercolor and india ink, giving the lanterns a wide variation in color and texture. Several lanterns throughout have striped painterly detailing, which lets different levels of light shine through, just like clouds.
This garland includes gold, turquoise, cornflower blue, royal blue, navy, turquoise, gray, and black.
Our garlands come in three sizes -
Long: 22 ft / 100 lanterns. Connectible plugs at each end.
Medium: 11 ft / 50 lanterns. Connectible plugs at each end.
Short: 8 ft / 20 lanterns. Connectible plugs at one end.
(Strand pictured is a long.)
Plug is for standard US outlets (AC, 120 volts/60 Hz). Lights are warm white incandescent. Strand uses approximately 20 watts.
Since each strand is made to order, your garland will not look identical to the one pictured, but will be very similar. A one-of-a-kind piece of glowing art, the only one to exist on the planet! Pretty cool, right?
INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: If you're outside of the Americas, you will likely need a converter to plug these in. If your country uses a higher electrical current than in use here, plugging in our lights without a converter will blow out the lights.
