Creating a solid object from a liquid material is what glass is all about. And what ice is all about. So there we have it - the Frozen Lamp. Designed by Maxim Velcovsky for Lavsit, it perfectly captures the moment when solid turns liquid - and vice versa. Doesn't this hanging lamp look like it is made from ice that is a fraction of a second away from melting? Available in two sizes, you could hang them as one-offs, you could combine like-sizes along a breakfast bar - or you could mix and match in a group light setting. The thickness of the glass is adequate to soften the light somewhat, and that's something you don't always see in sculptural glass lamps. Each piece is one of a kind, individually hand blown. The technique results in different textures, different thicknesses, a different diffusion of light from each piece. As all glassblowers understand, there comes a moment when you must "freeze" your design in time - allow the molten liquid to become solid. Velcovksy has truly mastered this moment with his new Frozen Lamp.

These hanging lamps look like ice on the verge of melting.

Each is hand blown, resulting in one of a kind pieces.
