Hatch Eggshell Pendant
'Hatch' is a ceiling pendant created from eggshell waste which is produced every day in large amounts from egg consumption worldwide. Known as 'nature's ceramic,' eggshells are fragile & strong with a unique light permeability. Each lighting pendant is created from around 60 eggshells collected from homes and local bakeries, then delicately arranged by hand & bonded to create the light diffuser. Inspired by heat lamps used for incubating chicks, the pendant is recreated with an energy-efficient LED light source & housed in a hand-turned polished brass casing. The semi-translucent eggshells are suspended by three fine cables, which provide a unique light-scattering effect when illuminated.
