Robert Temple

Reclaimed Luminosity is a collection of lamps and light sculptures, made by hand using reclaimed materials and found objects.
After years of collecting and salvaging interesting items, I started to experiment with creating lamps as I love exploring the combination of light, form, and function.
My vision is guided by balancing logic and structure with openness, creativity, and improvisation. My lamps are all one- or two-of-a-kind, featuring unexpected forms that develop organically as I work. They are made using mostly recycled and up-cycled materials; including glass, metal, ceramic, slate, and granite.
Some of the defining features of my lamps are the great variety of materials combined in eclectic ways; the additional lights running inside some of the lamps; and the fact that each lamp is crafted with an artistic vision, bringing a unique sculptural aesthetic to a functional household item.
