Fusing art and function with environmental consciousness is the heart and spirit of eco-design. Artist, Tanya Clarke created Liquid Light as a visual reminder that water is a precious natural resource. These lighting creations use recycled plumbing and hardware, handmade glass droplets and LED lights to delight and illuminate with their visual nudge towards lowering our water footprint at home.
If this union of light and recycled materials isn’t enough to get excited about creating functional lighting, Liquid Lights donates 5% of each purchase to benefit the education and action of global water justice issues for the Polaris Institute.
Light, water and social consciousness…Love it!
