Brenda Houston

I was always a fan of those small rocks and minerals you put in a small velvet drawstring bag and purchase at souvenir shops, so when I saw these lamps by Brenda Houston, I was quite happy. The lamps are made with hand-chosen natural mineral formations and they’re part of a large collection of other works by the designer. The Cairo lamp pictured above is made of genuine black quartz and decorated with a pearl and pewter spider.
