Gorgeously Illuminated Cracked Log Lamps

Using only salvaged wood that otherwise would have been burnt, artist Duncan Meerding illuminates the forest with his Cracked Log Lamp. “By turning them into a vessel for light, we can bring the outside in, and be reminded of our intrinsic connection with nature,” he says.

The Tasmania-based artist explains that being legally blind has inspired his minimalist yet impactful designs. “Being legally blind, this vision of light emanating from the peripheries and the highly tactile nature of my work reflect the alternative sensory world within which I design.”

Fitted with LED lights, the Cracked Log Lamps provide the forest with a nice, warm glow, almost as if mother nature was illuminating herself at night. They can also be utilized as as a table or stool, measuring approximately 400mm high and 300mm wide. The $600 weather resistant lamps are ready to be wired (12 volt) in any setting, and a new rechargeable battery version is in the process of being developed.
