Recently in our in-box: stoneware lamps from Brooklyn-based ceramicist Natalie Weinberger, made in her East Williamsburg studio. Available in three clays—black sand stoneware, “pale pitted glaze,” and vibrant terracotta—each lamp has a wheel-thrown stoneware base and a slip-cast, pleated ceramic shade that “serves as a quiet tribute to Weinberger’s family roots in the window blinds business.” The result is a lamp that feels cooly retro, in modern monochrome.
The lamps originated as part of Egg Collective’s “Designing Women II” exhibition this spring and are now available via Weinberger’s online shop. Take a look.
Above, L to R: A detail of the twisted cord fittings; the pleated ceramic shade, evocative of retro window blinds.
