Handcrafted gourd lamps by Calabarte

Handcrafted gourd lamps by Calabarte (9)

Przemek Krawczynski, known as Calabarte, is an artist and the author of the handcrafted, unique lamps made of gourds. He lives in Łódź, Poland. “I started making gourd lamps in 2009 when, for the first time in my life, I accidently came across the gourd fruit. As soon as I made my first gourd lamp, I knew that I wanted to make another one and shortly after that it became my great passion”

Description by Calabarte: Light is kind of magic: insubstantial, yet visible. It is something that can change our material world and the way we perceive it in thousand ways. After all, it is light that winds our body clock; it naturally boosts our mood and heals us.

The way in which light brightens up our lives has a profound influence on the way we perceive reality, feel and function. Light is often deprived of its magic and power, when it comes from ill-conceived source.

However, when it seeps through thousands of holes of a gourd lamp’s spherical layer, the magic begins to happen: the light searches for the shortest way to the screen on which it leaves its trace. That screen is the world around us – walls, furnitures, curtains. Suddenly it turns out that everything around us, everything we thought we knew by heart and everything that seemed so time­worn becomes the background for the scenery of unspoken beauty.
