Radiant Dark

Lucky you if you're in Toronto this week!  Not only is the Interior Design Show happening starting January 21st, but along with it,  exhibits in buildings around the city of emerging Canadian designers and makers!  A must see would be the Radiant Dark exhibit which will include my dear friend Claire of heyday designs, who's been busily working through December and into January on her porcelain cell phone chandeliers and lights.  I've been fortunate enough to seen the process in all it's various stages and before she left, she sent me the photo of the completed work!  Each cell phone was made into a plaster mold (a feat in itself), slip-cast and then all the electrical was wired by hand and the fixings made by her and her partner.  I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of it installed and wish her all the best this week!
