Stoneware Lighting by Adam Cornish Design
The Stoneware lighting is a work of Adam Cornish Design studio. The lighting range was influenced by the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi and the belief that there is great beauty in design that is honest and embraces the process in which it was created.
From the Designer:
The Stoneware lighting range was influenced by the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi and the belief that there is great beauty in design that is honest and embraces the process in which it was created.
The Stoneware lighting range was conceived on a visit to a local artist, at the time I was working on another project that involved the hand throwing of clay. I was intrigued by the beauty of all the hand lines and ridges created during the throwing process. I was also disappointed to see these beautiful nuances erased in order to conform to a preconceived notion of perfection.
Each Stoneware Light is made completely by hand from natural, locally sourced material. The beautiful ripples and grooves are created by the hands of the artist and are individual to each piece.
The Stoneware is air dried and fired without the use of glazes and other colorants. The different colours are created by using stoneware sourced from different regions and are determined by the natural elements found at each location.
The lighting range has been designed for disassemble, with all parts being held together without the use of adhesives. This ensures all components can be separated into their individual waste streams at end of product life, reducing the products environmental footprint.
