“Puru” Lamp is a table light with a soft gradient light effect. An elongated, bubblegum-coloured glass bubble appears as if it is being blown out of the ceramic base. The piece embodies the inherent qualities of mouth-blown glass, materialising the glass blowers breath in an archetypal bubble form. The idea for “Puru” Lamp came from testing opaque glass colours, and the gradient effect created by the glass getting thinner towards the top of the blown bubble, expanding the colour. The piece is a moment frozen in time.
Each piece has very slight differences in colour and form and size, as all the parts are hand-made with care in Finland. Includes a LED light source.
Glass part is mouth blown in Riihimäki by Mafka & Alakoski.
The ceramic base is hand made in Helsinki by Erin Turkoglu.

Erin Turkoglu is an artist and designer working with subtlety of colour, material and an experimental crafting process. Her work is influenced by poetry, architecture and archeological archetypes as well as exploring the boundaries of material and process.
Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making.
The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
