Design I Love: Laszlo Tompa “Flower Lamps” 2011

This is the artist statement (found it on his Facebook page). I am in utter love with his work:

I am a ceramic designer and majored in Ceramics and Porcelain at the László Moholy Nagy University in Budapest.
I designed and made wall ceramics tiles. I was primarily interested in periodically repeated, three-dimensional tiles. Later on, the study of geometric shapes covered seamlessly with bodies of revolution became the starting point of my design work. Bodies of revolution are universally known and beloved shapes, with any of their perpendicular cross-sections producing a circle, the most perfect and harmonic geometrical element.
At present, I make objects assembled from wooden lathed bodies as lathing is the most suitable technique to implement my designs.
Cube illusion:
A wooden storage box with a lid. A cube is seamlessly covered with three different bodies of revolution that engage in each other, thereby producing a powerful, geometrical design sculpture. The decorating elements create an optical illusion—one would not think at first sight that the box contains a relatively large storage
