New Haven, CT – After several weeks of production on the custom 18″ frosted glass globes, the modifications have begun to modify the solid globe to accommodate an 8 3/4″ opening on the bottom so it will fit on the fixture.
Below are images of the Grand Light artisans at work during this tedious process.
Shown is the custom jig designed to cut the 8 3/4″ inch hole in the globe as required for exact fitment on the post lights.
Once the glass is cut and the bottom is removed. It is very important to grind the inner edges. This hole is cut on an angle and it leaves the interior portion of the globe sharp. The edge is ground down for safety as well as to remove any burs or inconsistency in the hole.
