lamp no. 2b

Lamp No.2b is the second lamp developed in the search for a post-modern bone-china lamp. Following No. 2 "Calum", No. 2b is a single bone-china vessel that is fully illuminated by a compact fluorescent bulb. Unlike Victorian lamps that are comprised of a decorated porcelain vase, shade and fittings, No. 2b is a single inverted china urn, plus fittings, left undecorated and imperfect, complete with casting seam lines.

As with Lamp No. 2, Lamp No. 2b is a post-modern interpretation of a neo-classical lamp, albeit more simple. The ornate shape is cast out of a fine material, and left crude and unfinished.
