A large dome-shaped chandelier, handmade in the translucent ceramic material bone china.

Bone china is often associated with classic English crockery, but in this project it is used to create a light object with monumental dimensions and appearance. It is made up of a large number of parts. The cast elements have hand-sculpted models as a base. Together they form a slightly arched dome, whose parts differ greatly in light color and intensity by variables such as wall thickness and size. This provides wonderfull light and an amazing amount of detail in every unique piece.

The Dome China can consist of one, two or three rings. The measurements are:

1 ring | seven elements | diameter of around 90-95 cm
2 rings 22 elements | diameter of around 170 cm
3 rings | 45 elements | diameter is over 250 cm

Creation: 4-8 weeks

Sculptural ceramic lighting. Handmade in refined translucent porcelain.

The lamps by Bergontwerp are produced manually in the artist’s own studio, cast in an extraordinary translucent, high quality porcelain; so-called ‘bone china’ or ivory porcelain.
This material is often associated with classic, refined English tableware, but the sculptural design makes it appear solid and monumental. The unglazed bone china in this object – with it’s irreular shape and ‘skin’ – has a solid appearance which creates an intriguing tension with the semi-opaque qualities of the porcelain.
Each casting has a distinct design, which only becomes visible when the form is illuminated from within. Moreover, the finishing and the firing processes influence the final shape and surface of the lights. Each light is therefore unique.
