For each Spirali lamp, Margherita studies and draws the composition of the volutes directly on the raw clay with a pencil. It is conceived as a harmoniously balanced design of expanding shapes and clean lines. The carving, achieved with the use of a small milling cutter by drilling holes one by one, generates a pinhole projection in the room that surprises and enchants.
The various sizes of the lamps can be adapted to different supports in the home:
50 cm diameter: ground, shallow and deep stands, covered terraces, wintergarden.
35/25 cm diameter: living room furniture, tables, consoles, minibars, chests, entrance furniture, chests of drawers, desks, island counter, sideboards, weekly chests.
15/20 cm diameter: bookcases, shelves, bedside tables, small living room tables, pianos, windowsills.
Margherita Vellini’s ceramic lamps are handcrafted products, unique pieces that are carved, glazed and painted by hand. Consequently, the measurements, carvings and colours are to be considered as guidelines, as they may be subject to slight variations during the many stages of production.
