Discovered via our friend David John of You Have Been Here Sometime: the New Nouveau lighting series by Jason Koharik of Collected.

According to Koharik, "The lamp series is inspired by the beautiful sweeping lines and modeled forms of the Art Nouveau period and early French Modernists. Each lamp is a one-of-a-kind sculpture made with a variety of reclaimed and recycled materials that show age and marks from its maker." A limited selection is available through Lawson-Fenning in Los Angeles; to see the full line, go to Collected.
