Balance derives from the equivalent action of opposing forces and may lean towards the precarious or the certain. Cube makes the case for the beauty of sure footed balance that can be carved from disparate elements. Through the use of light, it illustrates the complexity that can lie hidden behind a simple exterior surface.   - Photo credit:  L A M P

Precariously balancing two surfaces, wall and floor, Portal is neither sconce or floor lamp, and yet it is also curiously both. The elongated form and reflective, polished brass core nod to the mirror as a literary object of magic, a portal to other worlds. Like our own world, Portal finds stasis in polarity. Favoring neither pole, Portal has no upside down as form balances function for lighting both up and down.  - Photo credit:  L A M P

The EastWest Light tracks the path of the sun, which rises every day in the East and disappears below the horizon in the West. The light is an abstract shaping of this cyclical process, which combines mood lighting with an interesting structural solution. Thanks to the geometric construct, one curved form conforms to the other.   - Photo credit:  L A M P
