Under the Milky Way

Mixed-Media Table Lamp

"Under the Milky Way" is one of a limited series of lamps that use aluminum camlocks, attachments for industrial hoses, as necks. This one reminds the artists of a cake topped with a single grand silver candle. The shade, a hand-sewn studio collage, is composed of many shades of white ranging from pure Italian buttercream to Madagascar vanilla and is accented with slivered gestures of silver. "Under the Milky Way" glows with a wonderful patina.

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.
