JAKE MARSICO created a cast hydrocal lamp with mortar pigment in hues of white and grey. The minimal form was designed and rendered in CAD software and made physical through a series of laser-cut cardboard models. The final mold was fabricated from pine and acrylic using a laser-cut pattern. This piece uses CFL or LED low wattage bulbs and is great on a table or on the floor.
