This art deco light features a stout, mirrored body, an exploration of the tangible and intangible. Reflections are phantom-like and can be inconsistent. Almost hallucinogenic, Sanctuary's hollow dome symbolises the eternal spirit of Newton. As a table or floor light, it projects a golden halo upwards. Whilst the bulb itself is the source of light, it is not incandescent. This piece is an original design in Shaw’s series, she would later go on to create Sol Sanctuary which features a traditional, luminous opaline and alabaster light bulb.
Reminiscent of light bollards, crafted in hand-polished stainless steel. It is made to be paired with a handcrafted glass bulb which helps project the light upwards.
Striking and truly distinctive, it belongs in the company of equally remarkable objects, including the homes of the audacious, and as lighting for art studios. Shaw Liu crafted this monument as she believes everyone deserves to have a cenotaph within their midst. A monument dedicated to the purest part of one's soul, which can continue to live on.
