Mixed-Media Table Lamp

Created by James Aarons
Collaborative artists James Aarons and Mark Taylor have created a collection of unique lamps under the moniker Imaginary Lamp Empire. Individual and special, the lamps grow from a conversation between the two artists where every detail, from plug to finial, is considered as an essential component of the final composition. Lamp shades are elegant sewn-paper collages using heavy archival paper, UV-coated for longevity; lamp bodies are original ceramic forms enhanced with found objects. Each lamp is a unique treasure with thoughtful details and surprises from any viewing angle.

Kintsukuroi, the Japanese practice of repairing objects with gold or silver to recognize that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken, informs the design of the base. Similarly, the hand-sewn shade is made of trim ends from the artists' studio's fine-art screenprints which, when joined together, create a rare composition.
