This is just a small taste of the coolness that is Roger Borg. Artist, Sculptor, and creator of neon lamps, Roger uses forms from nature, studies and creates from a common theme a body of work that is at once serene and exciting. I hope you enjoy.
Pull In Lamp
Stacked Series: both hanging and free standing, these neon lamps are made by stacking individual hand bent neon components atop each other. in building a structure in this manner, through individual layers and cross sections, i am able to explore and produce illuminated forms, both simple and complex.
I can just imagine this lamp on a traditional desk (say a Louis XIV) in an office/library. I think the contrast is just would be needed to spice things up. That necessary dash of the unexpected.
