A series of light fixtures produced from the playful experimentation of the luminosity of cow intestines. Cow intestines are most commonly used as sausage casing. For these lanterns, their elasticity lent itself to be stretched, stitched and dried over frames made from found metal and repurposed scrap. With minimal modifications to the inherent shapes of the collected metals, organic forms were created autonomously.

The inspiration behind this series was to imitate the dim garden lighting from my home in the tropics - warm and consistent. A night light hidden amongst the leaves that illuminate and form a winding path back to the indoors. The intention is for these lanterns to emit a flickering incandescence in order to induce a meditative state within the viewers.   

Sometimes you have to find it, 
the hidden signs of love. 
Leaving a light on for those 
who have not yet come home. 
A simmering glow, 
an imperturbable composure, 
just here, 
waiting for you.
