A collection of sculptural stoneware light fixtures designed by Chardean Chum and handmade in New York City.
Chardean explores ceramics with a designer’s sensibility, stemming from a background in fashion, with thoughtful consideration given to silhouette, texture, color and personality of the ceramic form. The collection is a culmination of bold geometric shapes and elegant lines that define and cast shadow and light, giving immediate interest to a space.
From an early age, Chardean spent much of her childhood designing and creating clothing for herself and others. Studies at Parsons and FIT were soon followed by the creation of a line of children’s wear and later women’s wear. It was Chardean’s desire to create pieces with permanency that lead to the exploration of ceramic sculpture. With that, a whole new creative world was discovered, as Chardean explored clay’s ability to take the limitless form of the imagination, where texture, shape and color play important roles of varied emphasis.
