This imposing one-of-a-kind STACKED Floor Lamp is made of salvaged Walnut. Initially conceived years ago after seeing images of the deep sea anglerfish, which evolved a elongated bioluminescent feature that grows from above it’s head to attract sustenance. But, this lamp was fully realized and sketched following days of observing the drooping heads and curved stems of flowers following rain storms. Their shared sculptural curves coupled with the ambient lighting element form a perfect pair.
Sitting grandly in any room, the cloven-shaped base is perfectly weighted to support the gently curving neck which climbs to a height of just over 7’, before it droops down slightly into it’s bell-shaped shade. The interior of the shade features the faceted contours which highlight Richard’s STACKED process, while the remaining surfaces have all been hand-sculpted smooth.
The salvaged Walnut perfectly captures the range of colors found within this particular wood species, including a wide range of mid to dark brown heartwood, contrasted with a peppering of the pale sand-like tones found within walnut’s sapwood.
The large asymmetric sculpture is composed of three individual components. The elongated neck slides easily into the base, with the cotton covered cord slipping just underneath. The shade mounts to the end of the neck with simple bolts, and is crowned with Tala’s Voronoi II LED lightbulb.
As with all of Richard’s work, the entirety of this piece was built, sculpted, and finished entirely by his hands.
