Guggenheim Features UG Artist Kathleen Plate

Glass artist Kathleen Plate is known for her creative passion, her bold yet uncomplicated designs and her use of recycled materials. She’s achieved much in her more than 17 years as a professional designer, and she just added another feat to her résumé.

Chosen to participate in the Guggenheim Museum Store’s Studio Program, Kathleen created a stunning spiral chandelier inspired by the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. The handmade piece, which features a white globe light and recycled glass rings, debuted at the Guggenheim Store at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York on Monday, March 21.

Before the chandelier hit the Guggenheim, two of our buyers, Carolyn and Erin, had a chance to check out the piece at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show on March 18.

Cassie spends most of her time at work writing things. She loves books (including comics), sketch comedy, and sci-fi. She's inspired by art and science. As a former Minnesotan, she longs for an afternoon on a lake, Grain Belt in hand. The New Yorker in her is happy spending that afternoon at the American Museum of Natural History instead.
