André Borderie (1923-1998) is one of the most prolific French mid-century ceramic artists.

His work includes ceramic bowls, vases, tables, vessels, carpets, as well as big sculptures.

Today we are interested in his great lamps that look like luminous sculptures than ordinary functional objects. His organic forms represents spherical objects full of energy and physical materiality due to deep craft production.

Both reproduced lamps come from the 1950s and 1960s.
