It is the magic of light and glass that underpins decorative lighting. This is not just because of how light and glass interplay with each other, but also because of the infinite variety of what we are able to to do--with glass itself, and by combining it with other materials.
Here, Victor Vetterlein (great home page, BTW) has combined recycled glass with rubber, using the same basic shape in a carefully balanced variety of sizes. See Mocoloco.
he is also responsible for Trash Me for &Tradition (the table light that looks like it is made out of egg boxes) and the Sprig Lamp.
