Lighthouse (2009)


This series of eight floor lamps are created from an archive of stacked plastic container tops collected over many years from Dungeness Beach on the Kent coast. From oil containers to toothpaste tubes, a column is produced displaying the diversity of shape, colour and function. The colours have perished due to the punishing action of the sand and sea water to produce an array of subtle tones. The series travels through the colour spectrum from white to black plastic producing a blend of colour in between. The top container lid accommodates its corresponding sandblasted glass jar which illuminates the Lighthouse.
