This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic. Sculpting with sheets of iron, cut out by hand, J. Blas pays tribute to the sun.

Story Behind the Art:

Every piece crafted at my workshop goes hand in hand with originality, design and quality. Hello. My name is J. Blas. From the time I was small I have enjoyed arts and crafts. I loved to dig and prepare clay to make my own pieces and from that time on I began to experiment with ceramics. When I was 17, I started my own ceramic workshop because I hate to ask anyone for work – I feel shy and ashamed. Due to my lack of experience, I had to shut it down and went to work in other studios as well as in a ceramics museum, where I learned everything – from how to look for clay to crafting techniques.

Over time, I learned more and more and became aware of the critical stages that clay has, and where it is good to depend on other people to work it perfectly. And so I changed directions and began to work in wrought iron and blown glass. When things began to get better, I started to experiment with sheets of iron of different weights to give my works more movement. Currently I again have my own workshop where we craft a variety of products, mostly decorative. We cut the metal sheets and hammer them into shape. Then we weld them and add the details. For a clean appearance, we submerge them in an acid bath to remove grease and carbon. After that, they are treated to rust before we paint them with a special, lead-free paint.

We are the first workshop in the area to utilize a fine blowtorch as a work tool and to give more originality to our products. Every piece created at my workshop goes hand in hand with originality, design and quality. We are always developing designs and products.

    We love our wall lamp. We did have to have it hardwired by an electrician but no big deal. My husband was going to do it but we decided we wanted a switch and an extra outlet. We hired someone to do it. No problem, at night it is really very pretty. I am very happy with the wall lamp. I would buy another in another design if it was available

    It took a bit of work to change it from a plug in to a hard wired sconce but it is fabulous :) Very unique, huge and stunning. Everyone comments on it and asks where I got it.

    Not as expected. The lamp was not illuminating enough to really accent the craftsmanship of the wall lamp. Also, I was hoping it was an actual solar lamp that did not run soley off electricity and would re-generate utilizing outside lighting as I wanted to incorporate in my yard.
