An ethereal exploration of materiality and process, Omer Arbel’s 21 Series uniquely transforms porcelain into sculptural lighting elements that blur the boundaries between art and design.
Made from a random amount of raw porcelain, each pendant is flattened and rolled into shape by hand. The resulting pancake shape is wrapped around a glass diffuser, allowing the thin porcelain skin to create a natural form over the light source. This makes a unique form, of varying size, in every iteration of the fabrication process.
21 pendants are designed to be arranged in groupings, such that the pieces touch each other to form clusters. The relatively simple shapes of the individual pendants, when placed in a group, make a complex sculptural form.
A strong contrast is established between the organically distributed soft light passing through the translucent white porcelain skin and the sharp, crisp light passing through the borosilicate glass diffuser.
