Lesley Anton Handmade Ceramic Lighting

Lesley Anton creates handmade ceramic lighting that has a minimal organic quality.  When first seeing her Barnacle Pendant in a showroom I was visiting, I was stopped in my tracks.  I knew that I had come across a very unique and timeless piece.  These lamps and pendants are not just lighting – they are art.  Lesley is truly talented at creating beautiful handmade pieces that are a one of a kind.

Voliere Tambour Drum Table Lamp by Mathieu Challieres

This whimsical little lamp can be found at the Conran Shop in NY. I could not pass this up - as I love birds! Floor, table, and pendant options are available. The only problem was deciding which one to buy... They're all great!

Wingren Sculpture

Jerry Wingren is a master at his craft.  The sculptures Jerry creates are derived from natural materials - wood, stone and metal. His pieces can be placed indoors or outdoors and have a powerful presence in their raw simplicity.  I especially love his Resting Stones (below) and Totems.
