This is a handcrafted wall mounted light sconce art piece. It is made of 35 interlocking translucent porcelain tiles which together represent the northern celestial hemisphere. Each interlocking piece is shaped according to the space allocated to each constellation in modern star charts. The constellations are represented in their modern linear form. Celestial lines of declination and right ascension are also represented fading in and out of translucency, as well as the path of the ecliptic. An accurate and yet evocative representation of the Milky Way glows through the porcelain from behind. This is a very unique piece, it measures roughly 48 centimeters in diameter at it's widest and is only 3-4 millimeters thick. The disk is completely flat and mounts 5 cm off of the wall. It is backlit by two 20 watt halogen bulbs mounted in a porcelain made reflector/diffuser.


A compatible junction box for proper wiring through the wall to a light switch will be provided (professional installation highly recommended)
It will ship with a cord with an inline dimmer switch to plug into a standard receptacle for immediate enjoyment if there is no prewiring.

The bulbs run on 120V mains and the plug type is standard U.S. International buyers please contact me about modifying voltage and plug type. LED lighting is possible with a small additional charge as it will require an LED driver to be mounted in the wall.

It is a challenge to photograph well, it is truly better in person where all of it's subtleties shine
