About the Maker
Simon trained as a product designer and has worked in numerous materials. He now concentrates on unique handmade porcelain bowls and lighting from individual lamp shades to multiple lighting units including chandeliers
Simon works from his home studio/workshop in Flushing using individually made moulds for casting porcelain slip to make candle bowls and lamp shades. Each is carved and or pierced to form a unique surface that is translucent when lit. Multiple lights are hung from hand made wooden designs. The natural way that porcelain often warps slightly adds to the uniqueness of each piece. "What is life for, if not to have creative fun."
