“What is calabash” we hear you say! Well calabash is a vine grown variety of melon that Polish artist Przemek Krawczyński has managed to transformed into spectacularly handcrafted, intricately carved lamps that illuminate their surroundings with brilliant displays of light.
According to Przemek, “By day, my lamp is a unique sculpture, while at night, the light breathes new life into that sculpture, seeping through intricately carved wood and passing through thousands of holes. Flowing shadows fill the space and cast the patterns on the surrounding surfaces, which turns each interior into scenes [of] breathtaking spectacle. The hypnotizing light can create dreamlike, romantic atmospheres in bedrooms, as well as calm and peaceful vibes in home offices or living rooms. Regardless of place, the play of light is feast for the eyes.”
We just love, love, love them! What do you think?
