Quirky lionfish lamp

A creative lamp in the shape of a lionfish by Australian design company Alex Earl.  Alex Earl produces a wide range of contemporary lighting and furniture.  The lionfish pendant creates and emits a luminescence in the form of a deep-sea creature.  With the option of being custom made to any size, imagine walking into a room centered around a giant lionfish lamp!  I have witnessed many lights featuring flowers, leaves, swirls and chandelier types, and although no doubt beautiful, they can be rather predictable.  This little critter on the other hand, is a first.  It reminds me of one of those strange and elusive bioluminescent fish that lives in the darkness at the lowest depths of the ocean, and functions as it’s own little lantern. I like the fact that this lamp has a practical function as well as being an art piece.
