Pluto Paper Mache Lamp

This lamp was made from old and unwanted newspapers and magazines in paper mache technique. The name comes from one of the planets of the Solar System Pluto. It belongs to the collection of two lamps which name refers to the name of this dwarf planet. Pluto’s internal structure consists of a dense core of rocks surrounded by a mantle of ice. Its orbit is elongated and when Pluto is closer to the Sun – the temperature increase causing the ice to sublimate into gas. This phenomenon inspired me to create a pendant version of “Pluto” lamp which is blue, very light, delicate, made out of a thin layer of paper.
