Sympoiesis Textured Table Lamp is a sculptural and functional piece, with a stoneware body and small oval shade in pearl linen, by ceramicist Viv Lee. The lamp continues Viv’s exploration of the materiality of clay and the metaphor of the body as a vessel. Rather than seeking perfection in symmetrical forms, Viv finds beauty in asymmetry and the irregularity of the human body. Viv takes inspiration from organic shapes, such as pebbles and the undulating curve of a branch. She approaches making as a means of connection to self and nature, she appreciates the wonderful diversity of forms that emerge and embraces flaws; accepting them as the beautiful idiosyncrasies that make each lamp unique.
Each piece is fitted as standard with a UK plug, 3m beige flex and an oval cream shade. An E27 bulb is recommended (not included). International wiring is available, please enquire for further details.

Viv utilises slow hand-building techniques like pinching and coiling in the process of making. Drawn to the meditative properties of these making techniques, Viv quiets her mind in favour of taking an intuitive response to the clay. The tactile nature of clay lends itself to the exploration of form, allowing Viv to translate the thoughts and feelings that arise into formal and material qualities in the works. Once bisque-fired, several layers of glazes are hand brushed onto the piece to create variation on the surface and then high-fired to give a unique patina.
