Primitive Lighting

The Primitive Lighting series are simple beautiful objects the create ceremonial and experiential ways for collectors to interact with the element of fire.  They are part of both my broader sculptural projects Reflections on Artifacts and Modern Objects for Primitive Living,  as an artistic take on experimental archeology as well a more modern expression of bringing these ancestral inspirations into our modern every day venture.
