Inspired by a dollop of cream cascading gently off a spoon, this pendant light is asymmetric but perfectly balanced. Made from ceramic earthenware via a slip-casting process, it is a study of contrasts with heirloom quality. The warm white, low wattage, long-lasting LED lightsource (7W, 30,000hrs) is hidden from direct line of sight at the top of shade. The intensely bright, directional light is reflected down the glazed internal walls of the shade to softly illuminate the space below.

  • CHALLENGE
  • SOLUTION
  • The low wattage (7W) LED globe is rated for 30,000 hours, and combined with an heirloom quality ceramic lampshade, creates a long-lasting, evocative pendant light.

  • By hiding the very bright and directional LED at the top of the shade, lighting glare is overcome within a singular form. The intense light is reflected down the glossy glazed internal walls of the shade to softy illuminate the space below.
