OPEN PLATONICS.. five sculptures/lanterns, hand made from aluminium and finished with medium/fine abrasive. These shapes take their inspiration from the 5 Platonic Solids, that were discovered by the Pythagoreans circa 450BC*

No.1 - Tetrahedron RA122
RA is an open Tetrahedron - 4 equilateral triangles. An aluminium triangular based Pyramid. A minimal mathematical object.. This new version I've made has a tea-light candle shaped slot cut into one of the triangular sides. A smoother way for the candle to enter the Pyramid, as it slides into the centre and is partly hidden from view. Beams of light are projected onto nearby surfaces through the 3 angular openings.. Also included is a silicone triangle to protect surfaces, and a match wand to ignite this unusual lantern.

Size: 12cm x 10cm ht.
Material: Aluminium
Finish: medium fine abrasive
Code: RA122
Supplied: in 15cm cube box
Includes: Tea light, aluminium match wand and silicone triangle.

This was such a nice discovery! I bought one as a gift and one for myself! Beautifully crafted, it gives off a lovely atmospheric light. Unfortunately, I have to put in the tea light through the top, as the side opening is too small for any tea light I can find here, which makes the side opening unnecessary. Still, it gives me joy every time I see my little pyramid. Thank you Michael

Quirky & robust. Love the way the light shows through the small openings. I'm going to put it on a shelf next time so I can get the glow from the top as well. Very well made, the heat protection mat & lighting tool were a great bonus. Thank you
