Designers sometimes like to work with only one material of choice so that they can gain complete mastery of skills with that one material. For designer Gabriella Levy, it’s porcelain for its malleability and versatility. She founded her studio immerLit in 2013 (immer roughly translates to always in German), where she creates beautiful, functional art that combines craftsmanship, modern technology, and functional sculpture design in the form of translucent porcelain lighting fixtures and various objets d’art.

Because of the nature of porcelain clay, Gabriella can explore endless ways to facilitate the interplay between porcelain, translucency, and light. Her current collection includes pendants, lamps, and candle votives that create a dreamy, soft, almost cloud-like glow in a room.

Vy Yang enjoys contributing to Design Milk, playing fetch with her goldendoodle Conan, and occasionally writing on her blog It’s After Five, her creative outlet to let loose on after she has left her regular 9-to-5 for the day.
