Clusters of Coral: Liz Quan's Pendant Lights



Liz Quan’s sculptural White Coral pendant lights came to fruition through what the ceramic artist calls an “intuitive and experimental process.” After carving multiple strand-like forms out of clay, Quan wanted to find a way to display the porcelain pieces in a grouping.
