Peter Marigold: Vegetable Light

In an age of austerity what could be better than The Vegetable Light, a posable table lamp utilising a large heavy vegetable as a base. Rather than buying a vegetable for its edible potential, the sculptural form and functional qualities are emphasised and the owner is invited to experiment creatively with different vegetables. “Yams, celeriac and swedes tend to work best” we are advised. The lamp was created as a handmade small studio run of sixteen signed and numbered units for the exhibition Food Marketo last year.
