Bioluminescent Squid

CK / 2022
Ceramic & Battery Powered Light Bulbs

Deep in the oceans are the most fantastical creatures that provide endless inspiration and a reminder that magic is real if you look in nature.  The firefly squid, or watasenia scintillans of the enoploteuthidae family are among those magical beings located in the Western Pacific Ocean.  Funny enough, they are only 7.5 cm (3 inches) in length.

In this piece I wanted to explore functional art that brings joy into the everyday.  A lamp brings light into our homes and bioluminescent sea creatures bring whimsy.  I combined these things to fill my space with that whimsy only found in the deep ocean.
