Big Tit Lamp Black by Hugo Meert
Edition 36 - Slipcast stoneware.
Hand made by the artist.
Black Big Tit Lamp is a luminous wall lamp. It is similar to the register of The Origin of the World (1866) by Gustave Courbet while presenting a real functionality and an increased fantasy.
Hugo Meert (1964-) Belgium
Research into function, beauty and design led Hugo Meert to create an entirely personal
sphere of operation which oscillates between art and design, craft and industry. His
passion for working with ceramics pertains to continuous experimentation. From a formal
point of view, he walks the tightrope between sense and non-sense. While perpetuating
ancestral technique and know-how, of which his mastery is remarkable, he never limits
himself to technical virtuosity. In the last twenty years, this master of ‘form and irony’
developed a famous collection of intruiging ceramics with a subtle touch of ‘terrar’.
