Japanese artist Yuko Nishikawa suspends perforated, papier-mache-style lamps from the ceiling to create dream-like modern design compositions in her You See a Sheep project. The pastel-hued lighting collection, called You See a Sheep, comprises a series of amorphous pendant lights and vases inspired by phantasmagorical concepts.

Each lighting design piece houses a light source inside its hand-crafted ceramic shell, which is suspended from the ceiling by a thin metal wire. As the Brooklyn-based designer explained, the art and design collection takes inspiration from two books: The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Model T Frankenstein by Hideo Furukawa. In the first story, the prince asks the narrator to draw him a sheep. Unable to do so, the narrator instead presents him with a drawing of a box, claiming that the sheep he asked for is inside.

The opening line of the second story by Yuko Nishikawa is “You see a goat”, suggesting that it is only in our perception that the goat exists.

“Floating objects surround you. You wonder if you too are floating in space, or perhaps in water. Gravity, the horizon, and the edges of the room disappear. You are happy.”

said the designer.

Yuko Nishikawa makes each modern art lamp by mixing paper fiber with wet clay and turning them into bulbous, hollow shells using a coiling technique, chosen to highlight the uneven surface and irregular shape of each design. This method sees the modern artist form the clay into long rolls before building them up by placing them on top of each other to create the desired shape.
