Item Details
Description
Attributed to Charles T. Williams (American, 1918-1966) Hanging Light from the Bavinger House, circa 1955 Metal 60 x 16-1/2 inches (152.4 x 41.9 cm) Property from a Private Collection, Tulsa, OK PROVENANCE: Bavinger House, Norman, OK, Designed by Bruce Goff, Pierson Gallery, Tulsa, OK, Private Collection, Tulsa, OK. The architectural work of Bruce Goff, often organic structures known for their adventurous quality of blending nature and structure; remains celebrated and admired. Among his major completed projects is his seminal Bavinger house (1950), built in Norman, Oklahoma and awarded the American Institute of Architects "Twenty-Five Year Award" in 1987. Constructed of local sandstone with embedded glass cullets, the house consisted of only an external wall: a 96-foot curved spiral anchored by a central mast. It had no interior walls, but the space was instead arranged with various levels and platforms, many suspended above the pool and plants of the ground level. Images of the house show an entirely unique vision for domestic architecture, and how to live. In later years, unfortunately, the house suffered some damage from heavy weather and was eventually fully demolished by the Bavinger family. This suspension lamp was made by local artist Charles Williams and gifted to Eugene and Nancy Bavinger on June 10, 1964, as documented in the artist's log books (volume 1, pg. 124). Williams was friends with Eugene Bavinger and showed his work in the same circles. It was hung at the lower level of the house above the circular built in dining table.
