“to compress in a bend, fold”
Solid copper, copper plated steel, tyndall stone
12 in diameter
Tyndall stone is a ubiquitous prairie material featured in both its rural and urban landscapes. The unique appearance of this dolomitic limestone is due to a crystallization process that physically exposes itself as a subtle sawn colored mottling. The organic simplicity of the stone is further complimented in its revelation of ancient marine life captured, compressed and folded within the crystalized pattern.
The ang[u]ere pendant light is designed to emphasize the distinctive crystallization which defines tyndall stone. The light is angled in order to expose the tyndall stone to the viewer, as the light source gently illuminates the beautiful patterning. Using digital processes, the stone is cut in a circular form and fit onto the luminaire’s copper plated housing, the warm metal complimenting the softness of the stone. The piece is fit with a simple LED vanity bulb.
In an intent to increase the user’s appreciation of natural processes, the ang[u]ere light creates a discussion around purity of form, color and material.
