Approximately 35cm in diameter, the base of each sconce is made from a subtly contoured and asymmetrical form, over this we applied by hand a range of materials to make unique sculptural pieces. Interesting surface effects developed with the individual patterns we made, the choice of materials and some impasto medium. Custom made wall-brackets were designed to effectively position the sconce, provide maximum glow and a sculptural side view.
We wanted to create something that could just as easily been formed or aged by nature - part fossil, part found object, part sculpture. Well received by both architect and client, they were beautiful and satisfying objects to make.
