Sarah Nedovic‘s back-to-front route to lighting design is evident in her ‘Lady’ lamps. After picking up her first lump of clay only a few years ago, the artist (and now lighting designer!) started experimenting with sculpture, before her interests expanded to lighting. Now her sculptural ceramic bodies form the bases of her lamps, standing tall and proud as works of art in their own right. The sharp line of each ‘Lady’s’ lampshade fans out gracefully, perched atop each base almost like a striking hat. They’re total showstoppers, and perfect studies in balance, shape and form.
Hey Sarah! Can you tell us a little more about the process of creating you Lady lamps? What materials do you use, and how long do they usually take?
For my lamps, I always start by sketching the designs on paper and then use the drawings as a guide for how the pieces come
