Julian Leigh May — 'Gothica' Pendant Light, 2022
Gothica Lantern, echoing the spirit of 16th-century church lanterns. Its dance between light and shadow evokes a mesmerising journey, shifting from radiant illumination to enigmatic obscurity. Gothica beckons the observer into a realm where ancient mystique converges with contemporary allure, casting a spell that transcends the boundaries of time and imagination.
