The Zig-Zag Lamp II 
2021

I began making ceramic lamps in March 2020 from my parents’ basement, a space with a cement floor dimly lit by overhead lightbulbs, discarded department store lamps and one window. Creating custom lighting not only satisfied my need for a brighter space, I found the works I made also stimulated my imagination and grounded me in my surroundings.

Some of the designs are creature-like, with arms and feet outstretched, light emanating from their cores. Others were inspired by shutters, lattices and other patterns of domestic architecture. All are inspired in some way by the many iterations of light outdoors: light reflected off city walls and silhouetting leaves; light cresting over a mountain or light glowing through apartment shutters. Constructed and fired from various ceramic clay bodies, they introduce the volume and vitality of nature into dwelling spaces.

All lamps are professionally wired with UL certified hardware. Visit the SHOP to browse available works.
