In recent months, we’ve been watching as handmade ceramic table lamps have taken shape as a burgeoning design trend. For starters, here are five artists—all female—who are hand building, throwing, and sculpting new shapes.
Above: Born in Italy and raised in Switzerland, Carmen D’Apollonio designs sculptures for store installations at fashion house Céline and handmade lamps out of her studio in LA. Her Bottle Lamp, shown here, is a 30 inches tall; $2,850 at Sophie Buhai and by contacting D‘Apollonio directly.
Above: Ceramic Table Lamps by LA-based ceramicist Mirena Kim are available for $1,450 at Nickey Kehoe on 1st Dibs. (A heads up that Mirena hosts a seconds sale in LA close to the Thanksgiving holiday; contact Mirena for more information).
Above: LA-based ceramicist Victoria Morris hand-throws and carves each ceramic lamp base in her collection. Shown here is the Small Dry Matte Blue Accent Lamp for $525 and comes with a white burlap shade (shown). For more on Victoria, see our post Ceramic Table Lamps from an LA Modernist.
Above: Spotted in London at Margaret Howell: Hand Thrown Stoneware Lamps by artist Nicola Tassie. The lamps are inspired by architecture, motion, and light and are available in white or gunmetal. Contact Margaret Howell for pricing and availability.
