Morphed Moon-Like Luminaries
The Paul Cocksedge Polystyrene Cups Project Makes Illuminating Lamps

By: Gil Haddi (Superstar) Nov 18, 12

Creating incredible masterpieces out of commonplace objects is what the Paul Cocksedge Polystyrene Cups project is all about.

Taking polystyrene cups that morph and shrink when heated, Paul Cocksedge forms beautifully textured pendant lamps. While these spherical masterpieces are quite large and ornate, they weigh very little due to the lightness of the plastic. The thin walls of the cups let light shine through, creating a soft white glow that is as soothing and gentle as moonlight. Each cup morphs in a different way as it is exposed to heat, and together they create a unique look and pattern on each lamp.

The Paul Cocksedge Polystyrene Cups project makes something perfectly whole out of individually distorted pieces.
