Friday Fantasy Favorites

So today, in what may-or-may-not become a recurring entry on my blog, I’d like to share one of my favorite fantasy things. The category “Friday Fantasy Favorites” casts a wide net so expect anything here. Today, it is an amazing light fixture from Lladro – yes, THAT LLadro – that I can only DREAM of ever owning/using on a project…

The fixture itself is irrelevant – what makes this piece AMAZING are the dozens of magnificently-detailed bisque porcelain “fairies,” suspended via fiber optic cording, each illuminated by a tiny LCD bulb. The shimmering cloud of figures, designed by Bodo Sperlein, must take your breath away in person – I know the price tag does! Issued in 2006 in what I am sure is a limited edition, I’m not sure if it is even still available. The price listed on the Lladro website is $60,000.00 US dollars.

Sigh… So expensive, and worth every penny, I’m sure.
