Surprise Ice

Mixed-Media Table Lamp

"Surprise Ice" is one of a limited series of lamps that use salvaged aluminum camlocks, attachments for industrial hoses, as necks. Each one sits between a white, textured ceramic base and a shade made of a white, sewn-paper collage that includes surprise flecks of silver in the prints.

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 that is 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.
