We’re longtime admirers of Anchor Ceramics, a Melbourne-based design studio founded by artist and architect Bruce Rowe. From his studio, Rowe creates ceramic home goods, including tiles, lamps, and planters, all made by hand. Here’s a look at one of his latest designs: the Earth Light, a ceramic wall lamp shaped like a cylinder that’s both simple and architectural in form.

Each lamp is thrown on a potter’s wheel; after an initial firing, the fittings are hand-finished with special glazes from Rowe’s lighting collection. The lamp pieces are fired one final time at 1,280°C (2,336°F) to add maturity to the glaze.
