Standing lamp XIII by Calabarte

August 24, 2011

Polish artist Przemek (Calabarte) creates sculptural lamps made from gourds.


Description from Przemek (Calabarte):

The gourd is an annual tropical vine originating in Africa and Asia. Its dried, lignified fruits are used for various decorative as well as practical purposes.

My lamps are made from this unique fruit through a process of manual perforation and framing. Wholly natural materials and the highest quality of craftsmanship allow for unusual effects. In each interior they create a unique atmosphere, which makes it possible to enjoy light in more than just pragmatic terms.

As the shape of the fruit is determined by nature, and the framing created manually, each lamp is one of its kind.
