The Tess light collection was inspired by geometric patterns found within nature. The light pendants combine traditional and modern ways of making, skills and knowledge and take advantages of their joined potential.
The motivation behind the collection was integrating long – established techniques of slip casting with elements of additive manufacturing and combining them with new mould making methods. Most of the designing process of the light was completed on computer screen with the use of 3D software and then each of the pieces was individually slip cast in the traditional fashion and hand finished in bone china, exploiting the material’s semi-translucent quality when illuminated.
The hand-blown glass dome encapsulates the ceramic shape, enhances its qualities and brings together traditional and contemporary techniques and materials.
