Serpentine Chandelier is an extremely luxiourious lighting piece. It comprises of over 500 hundred individually hand blown glass components, assembled around one large blown glass ball . The inspiration for Serpentine came from many various, visual points of reference, - such as twisting vines, the movement of the wind, and pollen, and brought together in this stunning piece of surrealist, botanical glass art. The Serpentine Chandelier, was so title, because it was originally designed at the Royal College of Art in 2007, which was situated next to Hype Park, London. In Hyde Park, there is the Serpentine lake.

Initially following a career choice in production ceramics and gaining an in depth knowledge of processes, it was in 2003 that Lethbridge was lured to study glass. This was to be a life changing moment as this new medium soon become his material of choice. Enthralled by the transparency and liquid nature of molten glass, repetitive throwing made way for a more experimental making process. In 2005, Lethbridge applied to the Royal College of Art where he then developed his range of glass skills as well as greatly increasing his body of work, both aiding his confidence and belief in his chosen practice.
Since graduating, Lethbridge has developed a reputation for his unique artworks, creating one-off sculptural and lighting pieces. With an inventive approach to glass making, Lethbridge’s pieces are instantly recognisable and highly desired. His glass pieces often incorporate a multitude of glass thorns, shards and tendrils. The act of repetitious making has stayed a constant for Lethbridge but now with entirely different end results.
