Baskets of Light
I make baskets into pendant lights (see photos below). Commissions of baskets or lights can be arranged in consultation using dimensions and materials of choice or specific to your environment. An electrician will wire the basket up to your specifications (ceiling drop) in a coloured wire or cloth-covered, which is complementary to the natural look of the pendant.
This trio of pendant lights was commissioned for a new extension in Robertson. The owner was inspired by the shape of old french beehive baskets and incorporate mossy twigs, scribbly gum bark and emu feathers.
An accidental discovery; the pendant lights cast amazing patterns on the ceiling at night lending the room warmth and vibrancy.
A bookshelf/cabinet of curiosities built in the room where the baskets of light are hanging. I love it.
SMALL NEST PENDANT FOR CHILD’S ROOM
This light was commissioned for a baby boy called Rufus. It has an avian theme with images of Rufous Whistler birds, nests, feathers and eggs and some printed paper dyed with black tea.
The words are from a children’s version of the most famous basket story about the baby boy in the bullrushes… His mother weaves a basket to hide her baby boy from the Pharoah’s men. He is found by an Egyptian princess, who brings him up as her own. I’m far from religious, but it must be grounded in ancient fable and thought it was perfect for a mother commissioning a basket for her little boy.
