Lanterns have been used for light since antiquity. With his Lantern 3 Pendant, Hendifar references the storied history of this important lighting source and honors its current role in spiritual and cultural observances worldwide.
The slip-cast porcelain forms of the Lantern 3 Pendant Light by Gabriel Hendifar for Apparatus float along a rigid brass structure. Their glow is punctuated by finely incised fluting, connecting to the most essential element of historical lanterns: light passing through a delicate protective form. Repeating spheres act as a counterpoint to the sizeable shades.
