Natural Materials

Named for the darkest part of the shadow, the umbra pendant pieces successively get smaller, leading the eye to the bulb's soft light. Located in the umbra of the piece, the bulb is dark until illuminated by you. A play on light and dark, and our perception of their absence, the umbra pendant is simple, sculptural, and welcoming.

This pendant was constructed with raw stoneware clay and has an unlacquered brass canopy and rod.

Dimensions: 12”Dia x 16”H; 40”Overall Height / Canopy: 5”W x .75”H
