Light The Way

Bring the quiet beauty of an afternoon spent in the garden to your home. Featuring delicate carvings and a sleek rectangular silhouette, this gorgeous table lamp blends Zen-inspired style with intricate handmade detail.

Captivated by the interplay between light and clay, artist Marty Kubicki creates three-dimensional carvings in porcelain that come to life when lit. Using the same techniques used in the 1800s to make lithopanes, Marty and his team of artisans craft wax carvings and etched porcelain panels hand make detailed works of art. Handmade in California.

Originally hailing from Chicago, Marty Kubicki moved to California in 1977, and moved into a home across the street from some local ceramic artists. He befriended his neighbors, who soon coaxed him into leaving his electronics career behind, and into joining their budding enterprise making ceramic jewelry. He started learning about clay, and became hooked by this fascinating and flexible medium. He yearned for more, and soon decided to venture out on his own. With his partner at the time, they started designing their own line of decorative accessories. Completely self taught, and with no formal training, he experimented with different types of clay and forms. In 1983, he was shown his first antique lithophane by a collector. He was absolutely captivated by the intricate detail that these delicate carvings produced when they were lit from behind. It seemed amazing and puzzling that such a beautiful art form had simply disappeared! He dedicated himself to discovering the secrets of creating lithophanes.
