Wobble Ceiling Light (Small) is by London-based artist Alexandra Robinson. This textured and contemporary piece brings a calm focal point to any space.

This lighting design was originally created as a bespoke commission for a beautifully ornamented home of a private client in London. The textured, yet modern and restrained sensibility of the light was a perfect counterpose to its already decorated surroundings. Made from plaster, the classic conical form is a playful and contemporary reference to traditional plaster mouldings.
Material: Plaster with natural white paint

Care Instructions: Dust or wipe with a damp, soft cloth. Handle with care.
Made To Order (8-10 weeks)

Process

The light is created using a specially-made conical mould made of metal. White plaster is applied to the interior of the mould, integrating a supportive membrane to give the plaster and form greater stability. Once dried and removed from the mould, further plaster is slicked onto the exterior surface with a palette knife to create even more texture and interest. The edges of the form are purposefully left ‘unfinished’ giving the light’s strong silhouette a natural ‘wobble’. The piece is then finished with a coat of white paint, and comes with 1.5m of antiqued brass chain and a ceiling hook.
