Cracked Log Lamp


Manufacturer & Design: Duncan Meerding

SKU: Cracked Log Lamp Category:

The Cracked Log Lamps by Duncan Meerding are made from salvaged logs which would otherwise have been burnt. These lamps embrace, rather than avoid the naturally occurring cracks in refuse logs. By turning them into a vessel for light, we can bring the outside in, and be reminded of our intrinsic connection with nature.

The warm yellow light coming through each lamps unique light pattern highlights the fiery fate that the salvaged timber would have otherwise been exposed to. 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.

These lamps embrace the cracks often avoided in timber based designs – pushing the light through the things often associated with darkness. Before turning on the Cracked Log Lamp, often a person would think it is purely just a log of wood.
