check out these sculptural, brown baggy looking porcelain and glass series 21 lights from vancouver-based designer omer arbel. they’re inspired by the random natural arrangement of barnacles on rocks, but to me they sort of look like mushrooms (it’s the color in these photos, i know). thin sheets of white porcelain are wrapped around assorted sizes of frosted blown pyrex glass cones. the handmade nature of this process guarantees a unique, one-off looking style for each lamp, and a break from the traditional methods of working with porcelain.
they hang from a metal cable and attach to a brushed silver canopy. singles run $359 each, but multiples can be ordered as well as custom pieces.
can you imagine how cool the 26 light piece is that they offer?
