Sebastian Wrong, Logger Head, Acid etched hand blown opal glass, polyurethane, Sweet Chestnut wood, edition of 20, 77 x 30 x 30 cm
Bauhaus Gone Wrong
Sebastian Wrong’s Logger Head, at first glance, is a luminous sphere upon a base of chestnut wood. Although it takes a second glimpse to understand the appropriateness of the title (the glass has been playfully etched with a familiar, Bugs Bunny-like smile), Wrong’s enthusiasm for invading and repurposing tradition is abundant:
“My play on the classic Bauhaus design of an opal glass, spherical lamp is mutated by pop culture reference. I wanted to twist the simple sphere and inflate it with a cheeky grin. Hand blown glass perfection and purity is challenged. The controlled and conditioned process is infected.”

Logger Head is included in Dasha Zhukova’s Design Picks for Artsy.net
