Martyn Thompson, ‘Quarry Lamp in Ox Blood and Rose Ceramic’, 2016, The Future Perfect

The studio has worked with a Fine Art Foundry in New York, who cast for Al Weiwei and Lynda Benglis, for the Bronze base.

From Martyn Thompson Studio in New York, “The Accidental Expressionist” is a collection of fabrics and murals that celebrates the creative process and the potential of unseen details. The incidental marks of the artist; paint splatters, stains and specks, are elevated and transformed into woven fabrics that speak to the beauty of unconscious creation. The paint-blotted surfaces left behind from Thompson’s creative endeavors have been collected and photographed; these images have then been woven in 100% cotton on a jacquard loom to form abstract fabrics that are exuberant and expressive of the designer’s hand. The Jacquard fabrics are suitable for upholstery, soft furnishings and wall hangings.

The Quarry lamp is a collaboration between Martyn Thompson Studio and ceramic artist Dove Drury Hornbuckle. The design, with it's off kilter stack of crude shapes, combines Dove's haphazard aesthetic and the refined, bohemian spirit of Martyn Thompson Studio.

Dove has assembled the lamp by hand, piecing it together like a sculpture, before it was finished in Martyn Thompson's workroom. Each ceramic piece is uniquely cast and finished in a glaze of Ox Blood and Rose.

Please note that the color and pattern of shade may slightly differ from the lamp pictured.
