Swedish ceramic artist Mia E. Göransson transformed the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajökull into these beautiful lamps, with the light bulb resembling the eruption plume, and the handle volcanic rock. The lamp is of aluminium, with blown glass and a porcelain switch.

Göransson’s work is characterized by simple motifs – fragments of nature and basic geometric forms – in an subtle, elegant mix of strong visual and emotional expression.

Eyjafjallajökull lamp is part of The Fifty Fifty Projects, a new business with the aim of offering contemporary, unique products developed in collaboration with handpicked international designers. For more on the project, take a look here.
