Let there be light! I guess we all need a little magic in our lives, and for me it's the magic of porcelain. Firing the porcelain clay to 1300c in a wood kiln makes the pottery glass like and translucent. Perfect for lamps like this one in my hand, like something out of Tolkien. "The Lord of the Throwing Rings"? There is a softness to the light that takes us away from the hustle and glare of our modern world, somewhere quiet and....magical!
