LIGHTING

 

ORB SWAG LIGHTS + CHANDELIERS

 

This series is a result of years of dreaming, researching, experimenting and hard work. I have evolved my 3-hoop Orb design which I've been weaving since 2003, into a 4-hoop spherical light! Both woven + non-woven designs are now available. Every sculptural Orb is one of a kind and handmade in Toronto, Canada. My whole artistic + creative career has been leading up to this special moment!

TESLA Orb Light

The Prototype

 

I dedicated my first light to the legendary genius, Nikola Tesla, a man ahead of his time. A true inventive artist with a bright vision of a sustainable + electronically sophisticated future. Others took credit for his ideas + designs, but eventually Tesla was credited for most of his inventions. 

 

To this day, many of his papers + patents remain hidden as he was for free energy and had no interest in profiting like other corporations or inventors around him. Nikola died penniless January 1943 in New York City.

Nikola Tesla inspires me deeply and I feel proud to put his name on my first electrically charged industrial style Orb design.

 

This design also features a bare steel frame + aluminum chains, representing the industrial age from which many of today's household items were originally invented + produced.

Personal Collection | January 2018

"My love + admiration for lighting began as a child when I was able to choose my own lights in my bedroom, creating a playful fantasy world. But my true recognition for this functional art sparked during my life in Egypt in 2010-2011. Handmade lighting is a true art form in Egypt, like ornate jewelry for the home. This concept + dream has stuck with me since, and has finally become a reality! I can feel that this will become a life long passion!"
