VOLT Lighting has launched a new low voltage path light that not only illuminates, but also decorates the space with light and shadow.

The patent-pending ShadowMaster is different from other lights that project patterns as it is the first to be configured as a stem-mounted path light. It is also designed for larger homes and properties with its grandiose style and scale, making it the first of VOLT’s new line of Estate Lights.

It features a black filigree scrollwork, beaded shade and crown finial.

“As a former tattoo artist, I envisioned (then sketched) elegant filigree scrollwork that would dominate both the daytime appearance and the nighttime projected patterns,” said Jesse Harper, product development manager and principal designer of the ShadowMaster. “It wasn’t easy to translate my vision into a manufactured product, but through hard work (and some trial and error) we managed to accomplish that goal.”

The light uses a single LED under the shade and consumes only 1.5 watts.

Steve Parrott, communications director for VOLT Lighting, admitted to being uncertain if he would like the lighting effect until he saw it in person.

“Before visiting the site, I didn’t know whether or not I would like the effect,” he said. “Then I entered the driveway – to my left and right, the path light stood as stately pillars. Their projected light spilled onto the driveway and road – the patterns of light and shadow a sophisticated and tasteful welcome to the property.”

VOLT Lighting will continue to develop its estate line of landscaping lighting path lights. For more information on the ShadowMaster, click here.
