I made Tatoo Sculptural Lantern from rolled stoneware slabs, from a template I designed. The finial is always unique to each interpretation of this form. Pull the finial and the lid lifts, bringing with it a suspended refillable oil light.
I took inspiration for the surface design from the costumes of the Swedish Ballet. My father gave me this book several years ago and I have poured through it many times in awe of the shapes and patterns it offers.
Tatoo Sculptural Lantern is fan-shaped, about 4″ deep, and is stable. Museum wax or puddy under the “feet” would add a sense of confidence. Safe to use indoors or out. Enjoy as an eye catcher by day. By night, succumb to the magic of candle light.
17″ tall x 4″ deep x 14″ wide at broadest point. Wood Fired.
