Score + Solder:
Since Matthew Cleland founded Score + Solder in 2009, his collection of handmade terrariums and planters has drawn attention from around the world. With fifteen unique terrarium models and an array of custom work to show for himself, Cleland’s newest addition to the Score + Solder product line is a collection of six table lamps, including three ‘Wood Base’ lamps.
Branching out from terrariums, sometimes called miniature greenhouses, to lamps was something of a natural step. “Many of the shapes already lend themselves nicely as lighting so it’s just a matter of combining them with quality fixtures,” says Cleland. “There are of course new designs as well, which I’m pretty excited about.” Each piece is designed and crafted by Cleland, relying on the traditional stained glass methods learned from his father.
The lamps are handmade to order and feature two parts; the wood base is reclaimed Fir finished with tung oil and the glass top is made with lead free solder. The shape of the glass top lend each of the lamps their names: quartz, iceberg and zome. Each lamp comes with a 5″ twisted fabric cord with an antique style plug. With a max wattage of 30W, the lamps are meant for mood lighting.
Score + Solder has worked in collaboration with Assembly NY and Urban Outfitters on custom pieces, maintains permanent displays at the Ed – Varie Gallery in New York and Totokaelo’s Art + Object in Seattle, and can be found in shops throughout the US, Canada, and Japan.
