    Karen McIntyre of Brooklyn, N.Y. said of Tequila Starburst: "I was inspired by the texture of the glass. Old world; handmade. Light changes when shining through, which made me think of a starburst. So I combined a handmade, industrial feel with simple, old world incandescent bulbs in a burst of light to create something unique and, I hope, beautiful."
