Sub-concious Connections.Posted: February 8, 2013
I took the top image at the Design Museum in London as I found the pattern and spherical concept interesting. This was a day after a trip to Ikea to source some inspiration (and finding the inviting lights). Only now have I found the image, after purchasing the spherical light shades they sell thousands of. My plan is to deconstruct the original design by creating my own paper “lanterns.” Initially working in paper, but moving on to ceramic materials and slip clay that will be fired to burn away any paper and metal within the construction. I also want to move away form the original shape to create a multifunctional final outcome.
