The agar light draws inspiration from seaweed columns. The two material types telling two very different stories in their production. The brass is machined, rolled and extruded from man made machines of the industrial revolution. The agar disks, its ingredients extracted from organic sources, combined in set parts, poured into their moulds to define a rough shape and allowed to dry naturally to create their warped and wavy shape. This contrast speaks to the two varied approaches to fabrication. One controlled and machined, the other free form and organic. The pendant exposing conflictionary process, drawing attention to two very different approaches to the production and manufacture of consumer products.
