Ombre et lumiere

Bone China offers a great variety of aesthetic possibilities. Ombre et lumière represent a series of unique, personalised pendant luminaires made of black and white porcelain. 

Ombre et Lumière is an exploration about how traditional yet segmented plaster moulds allow for individualisation during pouring the porcelain into the mould.
The process employs modular moulds offering a variable design grid.

The plaster mould is horizontally segmented in seven rings. Each ring of the mould can be processed separately. By using this design grid, it is possible to change the appearance of the luminaire while using just one mould. It allows the production of a series of luminaries that is individual and unique.
