Tribute to William Morris – lampe – polypropylène recyclé – Aluminium -Bois d’épicéa ciré – 30x10x45cm-2018
Tribute to William Morris, my first lamps fully made using only craftman process fused with Precious Plastic technics. This chysalis shape has been sculpted, cast in plaster to make an aluminum mold all the finishing are handmade. William Morris was an english socialist who spent his whole life trying to defend craftmanship when the first industrial revolution appeared.
100 years later we are still in an in-between dilema : one hand the post-industry and on the other environemental crise, the circular economy and a new kind of craftmanship supported by fablab movement. Let ‘s learn from the past not to make the same mistakes !
Each casting is unique according to the colors and the engraving.
