cement lamp, silver tipped lightbulb, red cord
(6” height x 9.5” diameter)
Made entirely of 1/4" thin cement, this LALAYA Design creation brings out the unexpected beauty and delicate nature of the material. Each lamp is one-of-a-kind, varying in texture and thickness. Ayê means earth or physical world in Yoruba. It is a common phrase in Brazilian music usually sung at once fiercely and sweetly, which mirrors the brute strength we have come to expect from cement and the surprising fragility it also harbours.
