I am enthralled with the mission of 
providing international artists & designers
"with the opportunity to express 
their creativity in the glass."

Last week at Design Miami 
they presented a spectacular installation 
by Dutch designer Pieke Bergman.

METAMORPHIS is "an evocative collection 
of Venetian street lights ...
that come to life through Bergman's fantasy,
stretching out their iron bodies 
& their glass bulbs like living beings, 
when Venice  is asleep."

I have adored Pieke's work since seeing her
LIGHT BULB series in 2009, 
at both Dilmos Gallery, Milan
Gallery Fumi, London!!!

And I am hopeful that one of her "BULBS" 
will soon "light up my life"!!!

Ukranian designers Valeriy & Ekaterina Kuznwtaov,
have created these divine "scarfy lamps."

The designers use steel frames
and cover them with crocheted lampshades 
of  Peruvian wool.

Several of the lamps have quirky "short sleeves,"
a decorative touch, 
that is also used to change the light bulbs!!! 

I love the lamps ....
and am very taken with the wrapped legs!!!

Anyway, winter is coming ...... 
so the timing for these wooly lamps couldn't be better!!!!
