Concrete Lamps

A few years ago i made 4 lamps using concrete, as presents. I wanted to investigate the process of casting at the scale of the object.

I designed the forms on Rhino, lasercut the formwork from thin styrene sheets (1mm), used a hot glue gun to rapidly tack it all together, hold the formwork in place and plug any leaks. I then cast the voids, and combined the resultant concrete work with custom metalwork, papercraft and other lasercut elements to create these 4 lamps.

As prototypes these pieces were never going to turn out perfect, but the process of creating them has taught me a lot about working with concrete at such an intricate scale.

Enjoy

    It amazed me the first time i saw it and it sill amazes me today after.. after almost three years (had to check out date of a pic i downloaded) in fact i’m surprised – i would have thought it’s been longer. But anyways.. it’s got all i like – delikacy, nice yet solid form, interesting material, irreconcilability between all of them and lovely result.
    I like it a lot :)
