Gilded Lilies

 

These two pendant lights were made with the intention of using an edison bulb styled filament. The cut side profile was an attempt to bare the bulb instead of hiding it away. Making the gilded lilies an atmospheric and warm product.

 The light bodies are made from slip casted stoneware which were once fired to 1250ºc. The top piece and drop shapes are made out of brass. The top piece was CNC from a rectangular block on the HAAS machine and the drop was carved out of wax and then casted. The ceramic body was left in its baked raw state without any coatings (but sanded) and the brass was polished by hand with Brasso, also left in its raw state. The top brass piece retained a gorgeous wooden texture from the metal CNC machine.

Gilded Lilies were displayed at RMIT & Fringe Furniture 2016.
