Born from playful experimentation with vintage lighting components, apparatus is a collection that merge modern form with the imperfect beauty of handcrafted materials.
Aged brass, hand-etched glass, leather, porcelain and foundobjects are assembled by hand to create acletic, utilitarian fixtures. The result is a warm glow that is at once timeworn and throughly modern.
Inspired by the mechanics of neural synapses, this pendant is composed of two hand-molded glass domes that require a 4-part firing process. A brass orb floats in transit between the two hemispheres.
The representation of an arrow in its simplest form: a line segment with a triangle affixed to one end. The trajectory of the arrow is determined by weights that remain hidden within the fixture. Brass with optional hand-wrapped calf skin or matte python detail.
Created from hand-carved wooden bowls found in the the turkana region of northern kenya, each sconce has its own unique markings and patina. Available as individual sconces, or loosely paired.
Glass orbs are frosted by hand to create an irregular texture reminiscent of 19th century glass frosting techniques. Three central light sources emit a soft glow that is refracted through the surrounding cluster of orbs.
