Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The moon is both luminous and solid, just like this lamp. Inspired by the flood of historical imagery preceding the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, Moonrise is a playful exploration of our nearest neighbor emerging from its own rocky landscape.

Porcelain has long been prized for its delicate, luminescent quality, but due to its temperamental nature it has rarely been used in lighting. Careful consideration of mold parting lines, vertical and/or patterned ribs, and filleted openings allow the creation of extremely thin porcelain casts. These delicate casts are often supported by custom-made saggars (or setters) that help the pieces survive the extreme temperatures required to covert clay into a crystalline structure.

The final product is soft to the touch and appears similar to milk glass, which, when illuminated creates a soft, ethereal effect.

Artist Profile

Born: 1974

Hometown: Duluth. MN

Based in: Oakland, CA

Break is the materials-curious product design and fabrication studio of Oakland-based architect, designer and craftsman Lawrence Davidson.

Lawrence's background in art history, architecture, furniture design and life-long interests in language and cultural anthropology inform the studio’s design philosophy and attention to detail. Understanding how objects impart meaning and add authenticity to both personal spaces and wider environments is core to the Break spirit. He was a founding member of the Environments team at Airbnb in San Francisco and has worked with Adobe, Woolf Olins, Goodby Silverstein and other leading creative and technology companies to design holistic brand experiences and physical environments.

Break believes the objects in our lives, in the spaces where we live, work and play, aren’t static — seen through the lens of playful engagement, they are opportunities to inspire wonder and delight, invitations to touch, invent and play. Break approaches ceramics, craft and product design through the same conceptual and formal lens typically used in architectural and engineering practice. This means consideration for how products perform at multiple scales of experience — the hand, the body and the room environment.

Lawrence holds a BA in Art History from University of Wisconsin - Madison and an M.Arch from California College of the Arts.
