scope design and fabrication
Made from disparate elements and forms mated into cohesive organic forms, the Ballast Light creates whole from contradiction. The bell shaped structure for both the pendants and the sconces is comprised of CNC formed plywood tops with imperfectly cast concrete skirts. When wall mounted, the armature is a slender lined triangulated structure that supports the light fixture as well as its copper counterweight partner. CNC milled form-work was created for cast concrete parts while copper brackets and bands were crafted by hand.
