Sea to Shining Sea
As the sun rises, light jumps across the water, glinting off every ripple and wave. Peter Katz's lamp mimics the beauty of watching daybreak from a sailboat. He handcrafts the design, laser-cutting an original illustration into birch. The result is four, mosaic-style pieces that he joins together using a special technique, fitting the pieces together like a complex puzzle without glue or nails. Turn the lamp on, and a "sun" pours through an indigo sea and pastel sky. The beautiful sight makes a great gift for sailors, beach lovers, and anyone whose happy place is the ocean at sunrise.
