In the new terminal at Sacramento International Airport, Lipski has created an unlikely tree chandelier. Like three trees joined at the trunk, the piece stretches out 30’, and is 12’ tall. It hangs from massive chains joined to steel collars around the trunks. We worked with fabricator Jonquil LeMaster, the world’s foremost artificial tree maker, to create this stunning, suspended sculpture. The chandelier has about 5000 Swarovski crystals and 3000 LED lights.
