{ceramic lamp}

clay: navajo white
glaze: sea green in reduction
measurement: 9.5" high, shade measures 6" high
studio: echo ceramics - los angeles, ca
artist: k. miguel

{this lamp took me a long time to finish. the shade took about 12 hours to carve, the round base about 3 months (this i'm not sure about), glazing about 8 hours. the entire process took me about 4 months to complete. for the base, i initially threw a cylindrical shape but decided that didn’t look right so i redesigned and for about 3 months i tried making this round ball shape. if you've seen my birdhouses that i've posted in the past these are actually all of my failed attempts at the lamp base. all of the hardware was bought on the interweb and i wired it myself. viola!}
