The motivation behind the “Tess” light collection was challenging the traditional technique of mould making process. Most of the designing process of the light was completed using 3D software but instead of obtaining a master, created and 3D printed a piece from which plaster moulds were produced. Following this stage, each of the pieces was individually slip cast in the traditional fashion and hand finished. The hand-blown glass dome encapsulates the ceramic shape like a shell and enhances its qualities.
