In 1993 Hans van Bentem started working with the world-famous Ajeto glassworks in the Czech Republic, he immersed himself in the great tradition of Bohemian crystal. This experience inspired the first of his exuberant crystal chandeliers, skull and bones, created in 1995. He has wowed the likes of several Royal families and Madonna with his bizarre chandeliers. Every chandelier is a one-off piece. He made this spectacular chandelier in 2005. Provenance: Café Proust, Amsterdam. (in situ last photo) Literature: Hans van Bentem, Keep on dreaming.
