Charles Loomis designed the Palisade Sconce to showcase its spectacular glass. Because the glass is extraordinary, he wanted its look to be simple and contemporary. Palisade's diffuser consists of more than one hundred free-form hand-cut pieces of crystal clear glass. Fusing them together creates subtle vertical ripples on the surface. The completed Sconce, with its thin-striped glass walls, looked like a row of irregular stakes - so he named it Palisade.
