Vegetable Light

The Vegetable Light is a posable table lamp utilising a large heavy vegetable as a base. Rather than buying a vegetable for its edible potential, the sculptural form and functional qualities are emphasised and the owner is invited to experiment creatively with different vegetables. Yams, celeriac and swedes tend to work best.

The lamp was created as a handmade small studio run of sixteen signed and numbered units for the exhibition Food Marketo. It is available to buy from Design Marketo with variants of switched/unswtiched and pink/pearl bulbs. The piece will be mass produced and available this year.

An analogue version of the vegetable light was created this year. Featuring a candle and a wooden potato.
