Log lights

Log lights

Duncan Meerding

2013

Much of Duncan's work is inspired by organic forms with a particular interest in how light performs around objects. Log lights are made from salvaged logs which would otherwise have been burnt. These lamps embrace, rather than avoid the naturally occurring cracks in refuse logs. By turning them into a vessel for light, we can bring the outside in, and be reminded of our intrinsic connection with nature. Being legally blind, this vision of light emanating from the peripheries and the highly tactile nature of Duncan's work, reflective the alternative sensory world within which he designs.
