Right now we are on the trail of the unique lamps designs made out of ceramic by one forgotten Czech ceramic master. Of course, for our preparing lamps exhibition for Lodz Design Festival

As an international context we publish here another ceramic lamps from 1950s. This time by Italian designer and sculptor Antonia Campi (born 1921). Campi worked in ceramic mainly and except her amazing ceramic vessels and vases, she created some ceramic lamps as well. These two examples present her sculptural organic sensibility. One can not recognize if is it free form sculpture or functional object. The first one is more traditional, when only the base of the lamp has a sculptural qualities. But her Conchiglia lamp is different. Its whole body is made out of glazed ceramic to create compact sensual object resembling the shell.
