Found Lighting

Allow me to shine my light on the amazing work of London-based artist Stuart Haygarth. He creates astounding lighting fixtures out of found and discarded objects.

Tide, shown below was assembled out of various detritus and small translucent objects that had washed up on the shore of a particular stretch of beach in Kent, England.


The Spectacle series is a tiered chandelier made of used pairs of prescription glasses.
It would be amazing to see these pieces in person; I'm sure the various translucent and colored surfaces and textures would create quite a spectacle of light.
