This design was inspired by the colorful movement of a personal signature. While custom cast brass captures that sense of artistic whimsy, the texture offers a rugged hammered and rasped look. The latter reminds us of the subtle variation expected of all things touched by the hand of man. This is functional art.
The finial has the same hammered and rasped look, and it continues the curved form of the base. The shade is Ivory Chinette. The base is a sculptural platform, a recessed plinth.
