Kapu Minaral Pendant - Paula Savage - Baidam


This hand woven pendant is part of a new collection Kapu Minaral, developed by Koskela in collaboration with Moa Arts. The collaboration, a first of its kind, uses traditional weaving techniques to create a truly beautiful and contemporary design product. As each individual artist has complete freedom to interpret the form, each light is a one off and therefore entirely unique.

Moa Arts is a Torres Strait islander owned and operated art centre on Moa Island. The local artists are inspired by their connection to the sea, land, sky and family, the colour and exhilaration of the Torres Strait is reflected in each pendant.

This lampshade is a representation of a big shark that we call "Baidam" in language that usually swims near the beach every day during high tides searching for food.

Each lampshade is wired with a black woven flex cable and ceiling rose and the lamp holder fits any E27 bulb. Light bulb not included.

We’re celebrating 10 years of social impact work. This pendant lampshade is a continuation of Koskela’s social impact projects with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art centres. Koskela has collaborated with the Yolngu weavers of Elcho Island Arts on Yuta Badayala (In A New Light), the Tjanpi Desert Weavers (Beautiful Light) on Tili Wiru, and Moa Arts on Kapu Minaral (Beautiful Colours).
