The January/February copy of Crafts has a feature on Stuart Haygarth and his fabulous lighting creations from found-objects. I really like the fact that they are limited editions and not mass-produced and love the way he has created something beautiful by combining hundreds of pieces that have no intrinsic beauty. Apparently he studied graphic design and was a photographer and illustrator for 15 years before changing career at almost 40 to “try it in design”. Brilliant!
