Eclipse Table Lamp - Linda Colletta
“We Are Woven Together & Lit from Within”
Porcelain, Satin Nickel, LEDs, Acrylic on Canvas
@lindacolletta When something is torn apart, and then woven back together, it become exponentially stronger than it was to begin with. I believe the same can be true of humanity and the world. I love how the light is wrapped and nestled into the painting, like a nest, safe, nurtured and held. The woven painting represents a united humanity, who relentlessly rebuild and become stronger for it. The light represents the future, hope, peace.
@tedbradley.studio As both a sculptor and engineer, my aim is to push the boundaries of what is thought possible. My collection features meticulously handcrafted porcelain rings inlaid with thousands of LEDs. After two master mold makers told me it would be difficult or impossible, I embarked on a year-long journey to create the world’s first set of porcelain light rings. Each ring takes 5 weeks and several hundred steps to make, using specially formulated porcelain that is among the brightest white in the world.
There is no switch for the lamp - it is turned on, off, and dimmed with a gentle touch. The base is made from 7lb of solid metal and finished in charcoal nickel.
