Artist(s) of the Day Avner/Yael/Sharan

I’ve chosen one of my ‘competitors’  as Artist of the Day

Because I love what they do with light.

You MUST look at their video!


Their statement:  lightexture is a collaboration between an architect, a lighting designer and a ceramic artist, creating unique designer lamps and chandeliers.
In our lamp construction we incorporate clay and porcelain, ready-made objects, lighting components and more. The lamps are fitted and assembled by hand in our studio. One of our goals is to create energy efficient fixtures, while maintaining our focus on their atmospheric and spatial performance.
The patented Steamlight lamps (patent no. 8025430) are a fruit of two years of development in design and performance. We offer them in a simple edition or in a designer edition.
Our packaging is recycled, elegant and suitable for a present. 95% of our shipping materials are recycled.

About destructivetesting

I'm a self-taught artist who prefers to use found objects in ways that were never intended. I'm not interested in making 10 or 100 of the same object. This, of course, takes more time to make each piece. I also prefer a more minimalist look, where each part of a piece can be appreciated. I consider my clocks to be small sculptures with moving parts. And, my lamps to be small sculptures with light. My mirrors are reflective sculptures. DESTRUCTIVE TESTING means to push something to it's limits to understand it's structural performance or material behavior under different stresses. I interpret this in my artwork as using materials in different ways or combinations than they were designed to be used. I also just like the slightly ominous sound of the term...

  1. Thank you! This looks beautiful!

  2. Avner, I realized I hadn’t looked at the video on your post. It’s very cool! Forget about sending photos or whatever.

    But, I would like it if you have anything else you would like to contribute. I’m specifically interested in the ‘artistic process’. Not just the technical part of it, but why someone feels compelled to create something. You have covered this very well in your film. Other links that focus on this, anything.

    thanks, Mike
