The Eyjafjallajokull Lamp may seem to have quite a crazy name, however, if you follow news headlines, it will probably be familiar to you. That's because this table lamp is actually named ofter the infamous Iceland volcano of the same name that happened to erupt last May, causing chaos for its neighboring European countries as well as its own land.

Created by Swedish ceramicist Mia Göransson, the Eyjafjallajokull Lamp evokes a sense of the threat of nature. Although quite stunning in its eccentricities, the oversized bulb of the Eyjafjallajokull Lamp is balanced by a nebulous mass that represents the cloud of ash that resulted from the eruption.

The Eyjafjallajokull Lamp is Göransson's first foray into product design and is a continuation of her nature-themed creations.
