The chandelier was commissioned by donors Lani McGregor and Dan Schwoerer and was made in Portland, Oregon in 1993 with the assistance of Lino Tagliapietra (Italian, b. 1934), Josiah McElheny (American, b. 1966), and Bryan Rubino (American, b. 1958). The chandelier is blown erbium glass and is cotton-candy pink but can photograph as colorless.
