I really like it. The light makes it look like a storm cloud.

southern flower:
Do you have anymore information about these fixtures?  I tried a search with no results to what you're referring to, and I'd love to see it.  People I've talked to and shown my work hadn't seen anything quite like it before, but I wouldn't be surprised if a similar (or even better) idea has popped up elsewhere.

The artists name was Ken Dunard - I googled it and he doesn't show it in his current Corflot portfolio ... but as I said it was almost ten years ago, and I believe he now does Industrial design.  I know it had LED lights in it because of the minimal amount of heat they give off... It had two very thin wires that supended it from the ceiling and it uplit blue and looked like moonlight behind the cloud and then could be switched to brighter white light that made it look like a cloud does when the sun shine thru. 

In no way do I mean to belittle YOUR lovely accomplishment!! - I was jut a bit taken aback by your ending comment not to steal your idea for profit.  Intellectual property is a tricky, slippery slope - and I have always enjoyed Craftster for its sense of community and sharing of ideas, I guess because I had seen it before I felt offended for that artist (SORRY!)   *** I contacted Ken - he said his was just expirmentation and he never really liked it (GASP - I can think of soooo many people here who would take it!)  He said to check out studio italia designs they have some peices "nuvola".  I also saw a hideous version on Isuwannee.com  Sept 2009. 

Enough said!  Great work!

This is such a great idea. If I ever have children I would love to hang this from the ceiling of their rooms, it would be adorable!

very cool.

We should all fear evil men, but what we should fear most, is the indifference of good men. On a lighter note..have you smiled today? If you have not, Just DO IT! If you have..do it again!

Also, following the post by Southern flower, this little number came up with a simple google image search:
