outdoor ceramic light designed to mimic the form and texture of sea sponge. It's part of the Pott collection of "Unusual Pottery" objects made in Spain and designed by Miguel Angel Garcia Belmonte.</p> <p>The texture combined with the warm light they emit give the impression that they are natural objects, versus manmade, electric lamps. The lamps come in four diameters: 80, 60, 40 and 30cm.
