Sharan Elran is a ceramic artist who explores the physicality of clay and porcelain with an attempt to push them to their extreme and expose their nature through interaction with elements and forces such as light or gravity. Sharan received an MFA from Carnbrook Art Academy and holds a B.Sc. in physics and computer science. He is engaged both in the mathematical and material aspects of his craft. His work was exhibited in Cranbrook Art Museum's "Mercedes-Benz Financial Services-ART" exhibition, as well as the Gallery Mc New York, Gloria Kennedy Gallery and The Public Theater in New York, among others. Avner Ben Natan has been working with light as material since the early 90's in his work as a lighting designer in films and television. After he moved to New York, he began to extend the work with light into the design of light fixtures and environments for art and dance installations, residential and commercial projects. A versatile artist, Ben Natan has also been writing poetry and prose. After completing a collection of short stories, he started to compose and sing his own poetry and has developed one of his short stories into a screenplay. Received a BA in Sociology and Anthropology from Tel Aviv University.This Spiky shaped pendant light is made of white translucent porcelain that shines in an amber tone. The light comes with a braided cord and a matching clay ceiling plate. Spikes is the outcome of exploring seam lines in porcelain casting. Usually seams are considered a problem, something to erase and cover but in translucent porcelain you just can't do it. The light going through will reveal any seam like an X ray. This lamp then is celebrating these fault lines in a decorative way. The mold was broken into many pieces producing many seam lines and evidence of the casting process which create different thicknesses of porcelain transmitting different intensity of light. This pendant light is supplied with a 35W xenon bulb that is twice more efficient in its energy use than a regular incandescent (equivalent to 70W incandescent), has a longer life span of 5,000 hours and a warm color light quality.
