Mixed-Media Table Lamp

The last of a collaborative series, this uncommon lamp is brimming with thoughtful details. The lampshade, a collage sewn from heavy, archival papers, is adorned with a zipper and silver and gold screen prints. An original ceramic form is paired with found objects for the base. This is the final lamp in a series, each created by hand using unique found objects ensuring that every piece is a true original.

Collaborative artists James Aarons and Mark Taylor have created a collection of unique lamps under the moniker Imaginary Lamp Empire. Individual and special, the lamps grow from a conversation between the two artists where every detail, from plug to finial, is considered as an essential component of the final composition. Lamp shades are unique, UV coated sewn paper collages. Lamp bodies are original ceramic forms enhanced with found objects. Each lamp is a treasure with thoughtful details and surprises from any viewing angle. 3000K LED bulb included.
