5% of the proceeds go towards creating The Fondamenta which has a mission to revitalize the ceramic town of Nove di Bassano, Italy (located an hour away from Venice).

The lamp can be placed on the floor or table. Each lamp is completely one-of-a-kind and embraces imperfections. The process is intricate and time consuming as one must be in constant dialogue with the clay.

All dimensions are approximate.



You have the option of having one lampshade upright, a lampshade on the side, or two lampshades.

Diptych and Triptych

When the lamps, vases, and photographs come together in a room, they juxtapose in various combinations, creating . Much like in a painted diptych or triptych, the formal qualities of the pieces amplify and interact with one another to create a conceptual experience that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Limited Edition

If you would like a limited edition lamp, you can speak directly with the studio for details. You will have the possibility to select the vintage fabric for your lampshade from a local Venetian upholstery workshop - and you will have the opportunity to select the glaze color of your lamp.

Collaged Light

The clay forms of the lamps are collaged from multiple different plaster molds modified to make each piece distinct; stacked in precarious configurations, they seem almost to buckle under pressure. Each one of my unique lampshades is crafted from fabrics made in the Veneto region and manufactured between 1950 and 1990, a time span that encapsulates the year of my grandparents’ immigration, my parents’ birth, and the year that I was born. By adorning the lampshades with fabrics originally used for objects, fashion, and interior design—such as silk, velvet, and wallcoverings—I suggest different relationships between the viewer and the figure of the lamp.

Break the Mold

deconstructs and reimagine traditions of craft by subverting the ethos of mass production. For this project, I engaged . The slip-casting process used for this group of works is common in commercial . For my series, I disrupted the process by removing the forms prematurely from the plaster molds, before their clay walls were fully hardened, and manually shaped their fragile forms into something unexpected. In this flimsy state, they were poked and prodded out of sameness, forced to stand on their own feet. Each of my works is only truly activated when it comes into contact with light or flowers, or is mirrored through photography.
