Stupa Table & Light draw inspiration from the Buddhist religious monuments that stand on the rocky outcrops of Tibet. Designed to be shown together, the pair have a quiet meditative quality with the light floating just above the table. Echoing the traditional Stupas made from mud or clay, table and light are formed from plaster and turned by hand on a giant lathe. From a distance the fine spun lines, produced by the turning, create an almost blurred outline. On closer inspection you discover sharp detail and fine delicate lines of colour. These lines, produced by cotton threads carefully wrapped into the groves and refer back to the colourful prayer flags that adorn the Buddhist monuments.Made from plaster and turned by hand on a giant lathe. Inspired by Buddhist religious monuments found on rocky outcrops of Tibet, the Stupa light echoes the traditional stupas made from mud or clay. Each light is of plaster applied in stages. The kinetic energy of its construction is retained in the finished piece. As a result there are slight variations between each piece. From a distance the fine spun lines, produced by the turning, create an almost blurred outline. On closer inspection sharp details and fine delicate lines of colour are revealed. These coloured lines, produced by cotton threads carefully wrapped into the grooves, refer back to the colourful prayer flags that adorn Buddhist monuments.
