Sculptural Ceramic Lamps By Carmen D’Apollonio

Words

Swiss artist Carmen D’Apollonio is a studio potter, with part of her work focusing on the creation of ceramic lamps. As an art assistant to fellow Swiss-born artist Urs Fischer for over a decade, D’Apollonio has trained her sculptural eye, particularly that which understands essences of the domestic setting. Now, her own practice has evolved to present endearingly surreal lights of loosely figurative forms, which seem to melt and fall into themselves as if they each have their own character. D’Apollonio’s practice celebrates the fusion of craftsmanship and functionality, and as a lamp is switched on, a new quality of texture or colour is revealed.
