Frankie Lopez, Phil Massine, and Emily Dotson from Victory Worship Center in Tucson, AZ brings us these cool chandeliers for their stage.
They decided to go for a more organic feel than normal. So they made customs standing lights with picnic buckets and made their own chandeliers using Edison bulbs.
For the chandeliers, they had a 10’ diameter circle welded with tube steel and 8 spokes inside to hang lamp socket cables from them. They purchased 4 styles of antique style light bulbs to put in each socket and they staggered the bulbs at varying heights.
Phil was looking to re-create an old style theatrical light. For those, they purchased 5 gallon and 15 gallon galvanized steel tubs. They painted them with a reflective paint on the inside and installed brass lamp sockets in them with lighting parts they got at a local hardware store. They made adjustable stands with yoke mounts and attached them to the light. Others they put yoke mounts on and hung them with all-thread from the lighting grid.
