Synodic Sconce, Light Sculpture by Neal Aronowitz, Glass, S. Steel, Granite

$7,900

About

Synodic sconce: Nightlight brings mankind in touch with the mysteries of space and the farther reaches of the universe. The moon, traditionally our principal source of nightlight, can evoke strong emotions- from fear and terror to peace and calm. The celestial movements of earth, sun, and moon govern the lunar or synodic month, with the familiar shifting moon phases. Synodic sconce is a representation of these moon phases and an expression of this beguiling celestial dance. Twenty eight blown glass globes are arranged in a vertical arcing pathway over Black Galaxy Granite. The broncite scales within the granite glitter like the night sky. The glass globes, internally illuminated with LED bulbs, are hand painted black to evoke the gradual waxing and waning of the moon cycle. Mirror polished stainless steel borders the sconce. Resonant with cosmic mystery, Synodic Sconce is familiar and enchanting, an illuminated sculptural light source and object of contemplation. Materials Hand blown glass bulbs, granite, mirror polished stainless steel, LED bulbs. Dimensions 68” tall x 6” wide x 2” deep.

About the Maker

Neal Aronowitz Design

Neal Aronowitz art/design was founded in 2014 and has swiftly won acclaim in the international design world. The vision of the studio is the design and fabrication of highly sculptural, hand crafted bespoke furniture and lighting. Aronowitz’s debut piece was the Whorl Coffee Table, which won international notice including a feature in Elle Décor and was the recipient of a People’s Choice Award at the AZ Design Award. The Whorl Coffee Table was the first offering in what was to grow into the Concrete Canvas Collection. Concrete Canvas is a new material that allows concrete to be used in radically innovative ways. Aronowitz continues to be the only designer worldwide developing and working with this unique material. The Whorl Console, the second piece in the Concrete Canvas Collection won Interior Design Magazine’s Best of Year Award and a Gray Design Award for furniture design, sponsored by Gray Magazine. In 2017 Aronowitz made his first foray into lighting with the Boro Boro Chandelier, a dynamic and exuberant chandelier which won second place in the LAMP International Design Competition in Vancouver BC. Neal Aronowitz was recently the subject of an award-winning documentary film, "How To Bend Concrete In 108 Easy Steps." The work of the studio continues with a passion for iconic forms and material exploration.
