Apollo Lamp by Nicola Tassie, a dynamic functional piece inspired by French New Wave pottery from the 1960s.

Apollo Lamp by ceramicist Nicola Tassie. Inspired by the work of French New Wave potters from the 1960's, who blurred the boundaries between sculptural and functional objects, the piece takes its name from the Apollo, the Greek god of light. Exploring how light reflects and absorbs across the different surfaces, the sculptural form also presents the illusion of a column of stacked domestic pots.

Process

The lamp bases is created from an accumulation of discarded pots which had originally been rejected for various reasons, such as wrong size or inaccurate form. These parts were then ‘recycled’ - into a ‘non-designed’ structure, depicting the idea of a column of stacked pots.
