OverNight Lighting Collection by Odd Matter

“Vessel Gallery is proud to present a new spectacular lighting collection by studio Odd Matter. Taking traditional copper plating techniques as their catalyst; sumptuous stained glass panels in rich shades of ruby, amber and mother of pearl are held in place by copper strips which are immersed over night in an electro-plating bath. It is during these twilight hours that these pieces literally grow as the strips act as a starting point for more copper to form, bonding all the edges together to make a perfect, tight fitting frame which holds the piece as one. This magical process also changes the copper’s appearance to that of one with a highly unpredictable nature, smooth flat lines are transformed to have an effervescent and lustrous surface decoration. By coaxing and exploiting this technique, laborious and seemingly primitive styles of making such as soldering can be avoided. From an initial ordered structure based on the crystalline formation of the actual copper solution used, these pieces take on a life of their own resulting in no two pieces ever being the same. On show during the London Design Festival and until 20th October 2013.” vesselgallery.com
