I’ve always admired the figural sculpture of Debra Fritts. When I started to work in clay and taking classes at Pottery Northwest I saw a few pieces that she was showing at the Pacini Lubel Gallery in Seattle. I have to say that I was inspired.
These two pieces came to me last week to be built into lamps. Mary Hansen is designing a bedroom for her client who is an avid collector but in her small home has few horizontal surfaces for display. Mary came up with the brilliant idea to use these as bedside table lamps.
Guess who made the bases and the mounts? Of course! My friends at Landbridge Lighting…………..they can make anything!
The sculptures are not attached to the wood bases but held in place by the bands at their waists. Very clever!!
Chris helped Mary find some wood chunks down in the shop to use for the bases. Stephen sandblasted the wood and created this beautiful texture which he finished with wax.
Mary chose a linen sheer from Henry Calvin and I ordered the frames for the lampshades. While I’m waiting for the frames to arrive I get to enjoy looking at these for another week or so.
