I love the creativity and energy behind Scabetti's ocean inspired "Shoal" light. A mass of fine bone china fish carrying delicate sculpted detail, circle a central beam of light, creating a captivating cylindrical form. Each fish is lit not only by reflected light from its neighbors but also from within, with the light passing through the delicate translucent china… Continue
