OverNight by Odd Matter

Wednesday, 25 September 2013

Currently on show at west London's Vessel Gallery, this series of lighting by design studio Odd Matter is made of stained glass panels held together by electro-plated copper.

Called OverNight, the pieces are made of stained glass panels in tones of ruby, amber and mother of pearl, secured by copper strips that have been immersed in an electro plating bath. During the overnight immersion, the copper strips grow another, more jagged layer of copper, which fits tightly to the edges to create a secure frame for the panels.

The exhibition runs until 20th October at Vessel Gallery, 114 Kensington Park Road, London W11 2PW.
