Colin Hopkins - Bongo

Colin Hopkins

Each one-off luminaire in this series is brought to life on the potter’s wheel where uniquely formulated Australian clays are skilfully hand thrown to the verge of collapse in order to achieve the distictive delicacy and lightness of form. Hand etching further enhances the individuality and quietly spinning character of each piece.

 This range celebrates the unique translucent qualities of a particularly pure porcelain clay body allowing light to gently penetrate the hand-textured surface. The distinctive shimmering glow is not only a delightful source of ambient light, but also allows these shdes to shine as beautiful, sculptural objects in their own right.

The Bongo pendant is ideal for small to medium dining areas when hung in clusters or over island benches. Also ideal for entry areas as a sculptural feature.

Designed and manufactured in Melbourne.
