The “Spectacle Lamp” is a celebration of all my artistic friends who wear these kind of heavy framed black glasses, looking like sons of Roy Orbison or daughters of Nana Mouskouri,” as Job likes to explain. Iconography for Studio Job is both the starting point and the realized piece, meaning that function is usually secondary in their work. This giant pair of black-rimmed glasses is hand sculpted out of cast metal (mainly bronze), and can be mounted like a wall ornament. By pulling the small gilded skull hanging from the cord switch, the iconic glasses give light.
