Glazed Terracotta Lamps

View all 10 Photos

A collaborative experiment by Chilean artisans and designer Abel Cárcamo Segovia, these terracotta lamps play with traditional and contemporary forms to produce a unique lighting effect. Each ceramic shade is brushed with modern finish but made according to ancient technique. The pottery is painted with platinum, white, or black glaze and is topped with a polished cap of aluminum, bronze, or copper. Each lamp curves at the lip, allowing lighting to escape at the side. The spill of light illuminates some parts of a room more than others, creating a textured atmosphere and allowing the lamp to shine in a variety of scenes, from the studio to the home.
