DESIGNER: Duquette

EDITOR: Kohler Interiors, Baker Knapp

PERIOD: 1970's

One of Duquette's most beloved and rare designs, the Ghost Snail has been recreated from cast resin using a rare, craft-based process. The resin is poured into an intricately hand-carved mold, which sets up and self-hardens overnight. The piece is then hand-carved to bring out the elaborate detail, and finally wrapped in natural pin shell veneer. The interior is fitted with twin frosted 40-watt bulbs, illuminating through the pin shell in a soft, hypnotic glow. The lamp is equipped with a transparent cord and fitted with a discreet hand switch. Circa 1970.
