"Ripe" - Hand Knit Lamp

  • This hand knit lamp, made from copper wire and cotton, was inspired by Ruth Asawa’s crochet sculptures and Ernst Haeckel’s illustrations. I designed a lace pattern that would create 3 dimensional shape as well as intricate shadows. Using wire and yarn together creates an unique fabric that is flexibly firm and both hard and soft at the same time.
