Process

This piece is crafted from white earthenware clay, and made into a lamp by hand rolling the slabs and cutting out the individual shapes. The slabs are then joined and moulded by hand to create the lamp base. With a light blue body, each side features a hand painted yellow canary and dark green details wrapping around the neck of the lamp and the front sides.
