Co-Founders, Victoria Young and Quang Hong, originally met in Chicago at a glassblowing studio. Quang, wanted to create a design that reflects this history while giving back to the community. Fifteen percent of sales will be donated to Project FIRE, an artist development employment program that supports trauma recovery and creates jobs for those injured by violence. More on Project FIRE can be found here: https://www.projectfirechicago.org
We also wanted to have our community be involved from start to finish with this piece. It was important to us that the money we put into production would support our surrounding community of Brooklyn artists, so that is why we blow these exclusively at Urban Glass in NYC.
The light itself has an intoxicating glow. It is also fully dimmable which means the Velveteen Heart can be used for practical sconce lighting and can be dimmed down to an ambient art installation. The opaque quality of the glass diffuses the light gently.
This light is paired with an energy efficient LED or eco-halogen bulb.
