Sculptural Hand-Built Ceramic Pendant Lamp in Matte Pink by Yuko Nishikawa

About

Floating objects surround you. You wonder if you too are floating in space, or perhaps in water. Gravity, the horizon, and the edges of the room disappear. You are happy. Al-Fah is a pendant lamp from You See a Sheep, a lighting collection that uses hand-built ceramic shells to house the light source and height-adjustable steel suspension cable to make them appear to be floating in space.  A mysterious warm glow is revealed through the holes against the interior’s dry paper-like surface. The individually hand-built ceramic canopy, finials and socket cover add an enjoyable uniqueness. Single, double and multiple shells can be installed with single ceramic canopy housing wire connections. Larger compositions with multiple shells can be designed specific to an installation site. Dimensions & weight: Shell 12 x 12 x 19 in. / 30 x 30 x 48 cm 6 lbs / 2.8 kg Adjustable drop length with custom cable lengths 5 in. / 12.5 cm diameter canopy to house wiring Materials Shells, socket covers, canopies and finials in hand-built ceramic in a matte finish, brass cable grippers, steel wire, off-white nylon covered cord, and electrical components Light source 1 x E-26 medium base per shell Additional info Each lamp is individually hand-built without using a mold to create an enjoyable uniqueness and spatial balance within each form. Variations in dimensions, forms, and finishes are expected.  The story The title You See a Sheep is inspired by two stories: The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Model T Frankenstein by Hideo Furukawa.

About The Maker

Yuko Nishikawa

View Profile
Yuko Nishikawa is a Brooklyn-based design and ceramic art studio that aims to find the mystery and beauty in everyday lives, and values joy in communicating these discoveries through installations and collections of objects which include sculptural ceramic lighting, contemporary art objects, accessories, vases, and tableware. We also believe joy spreads. Through experiments and training we explore the emotional language objects convey, in relation to the space and the people who interact with them. Each product is individually handmade with a combination of techniques including wheel-throwing and hand-building with coils and slabs with various types of clay such as stoneware, earthenware, porcelain and cellulose clay. We mix our own glazes and fire ceramic pieces in our studio in Brooklyn. We work on design projects with the client as a team member to prototype and produce finishes and forms.  The founder, Yuko Nishikawa, has a decade of experience in designing furniture and lighting products as a Lead Industrial Designer, in addition to prior years as Assistant Interior Designer in some of the prominent studios in NYC. She is a skilled wheel-thrower and a hand-builder. She also runs a monthly talk event, Salon at Forest, a gathering and conversation of creative minds.
