New York architect and designer Jes Paone have created a collection of lights in collaboration with his aunt, the ceramicist Anne Paone, which feature cracked, wobbly porcelain shades.
The Desert series comprises seven variations, ranging from table and pendant lamps to sconces with contrasting brass fixings.
Through their crevices, the semi-translucent lights emit an eery, red-tinged glow.
Instead of relying on a mold, Anne Paone threw the organic shapes by hand while her nephew, who admits to having "no skills on the wheel", directed the overall appearance.
This process, which was perfected by the duo over a matter of years, yields a unique result every time, whether the spherical pendants or the cocoon-shaped sconces are ever alike.
