Season Lamps I & II by Jomi Evers Solheim

Season Lamps is a project that relates to the long and cold nordic winter. Inspired by snow lanterns the lamp shades are molded in snow. At the right temperature snow offers great construction properties, but it is a impermanent material so I developed a technique to preserve the final shapes. In the workshop, the profiles are inverted in plaster molds and casted in porcelain clay to gain a permanent form. The translucent porcelain has a warm glow when illuminated from the inside, much like the winters snow lanterns.
