Description

Todd Merrill Studio

A fantastic example of an early, commissioned sculptural steel lamp by Paul Evans, the L-shaped lamp’s square obelisk body is formed from rectilinear sections of welded steel with alternating blackened and polychromed enamel in a patchwork pattern. An unexpected and amusing foot is constructed with an internal light mimicking the torchiere’s main upright light source. The unorthodox form is a testament to Evans’ idiosyncratic approach to design and unwavering confidence as a sculptor.
