The Porcelain Seedlamp is made of thin porcelain and voided traces of barley and quinoa seeds that were embedded within the porcelain prior to burning.Incorporating an Energy Star - Energy saving light bulb, it is designed to make a pleasant to live with energy efficient light source, using the material quality of a very thin translucent porcelain that allows light to shine through it. The porcelain gives an amber tone to the color of the light and makes it warmer, softer and diffused. The voided seed traces glow in a stronger hue and create a map of its process and a seeded constellations.The Seedlamp is part of our Earthlight series that was developed during a long research process to create energy efficient and aesthetically pleasing light fixtures, partially funded by the 'Pratt Institute Faculty Development Fund'.Comes with hardware to connect it to an electrical box or alternatively can be ordered with a 15 feel cord and plug for hanging on a hook.It also includes a mechanism of reducing or increasing the light intensity by slightly raising and lowering the lampshade.A feedback we got for this item:I just wanted to say thank you for Such a beautiful and unique piece of art....that also lights my kitchen.
