THE WAVE COLLECTION – SCULPTURES OF LIGHT
Combining the organic nature of free-blown glass with a modern aesthetic, Esther Patterson, founder of Curiousa, has pushed the boundaries and designed the WAVE COLLECTION, which includes six new lights, ranging from table lamps to vertical and horizontal statement sculptural lights.

Esther says, “I wanted something that was modern and streamlined but held onto my natural bent for colour, the organic form and the ‘hand-made’, something that would be interchangeable and repairable – to last a long time. Plus a piece that stands on its’ own as a sculptural entity in its’ own right – not just a light.”

EACH GLASS ELEMENT IS DIFFERENT
Each element, whether glass, wood or metal has been carefully hand-crafted in the UK, then hand-assembled by the Curiousa Team in their Derbyshire workshop. Every piece of glass is unique as it’s free-blown, without the use of moulds, using just the skill of hand and eye to guide each shape. Careful precision and detail have been required as each glass piece is carefully ground and polished to fit perfectly together in an effortless line.

FLOATING ON AIR AND LED TECHNOLOGY
To create a floating soft beam of light the Wave Collections uses LED technology. Each sculptural light houses a spiral of LED strips within a diffused tubular suspension, punctuated by solid brass end-caps, creating a beam of light that glows through linear stacked free-blown glass pieces. They are powered by low voltage currents through fine suspension wires creating a feeling as if they are floating on air.

SUSTAINABLE & ETHICAL APPROACH
With a choice of twenty two colours, all our glass is made to order and free-blown in the UK, and all brass and wooden parts are sourced from small local workshops.
It’s also important that these lights stand the test of time and are built to last. Each of these lights can be taken apart and each part can be replaced and refurbished.
We are also developing plastic free packaging for this product, making sure that from conception to delivery sustainability are at the core of our approach.
