Shimmer Studio designs and makes sculptural ceramic lights. The pieces are individually crafted and draw upon a long history of technical innovation used to produce stronger, more refined, ceramics. Each piece is hand-built, in a time-consuming process that yields results that would not be possible using other techniques. The unique bodies draw inspiration from the beauty of the natural world, figurative sculpture and art. Each shape is thoughtfully constructed to exist in a variety of spaces and atmospheres.
