MAD Museum: In the Studios with Ben Light

I will be working at the Museum of Arts and Design from Jan 19th to Jan 22nd. Stop on by and say hello.

“Watch artist Ben Light as he creates table lamps combining the method of stack lamination with the latest digital fabrication techniques. Visitors will see Light transform the most basic of materials—wood, on a large lathe to produce lamps that are both functional and sculptural.”

Tuesday, Jan 19, 10am to 5pm
Wednesday, Jan 20, 10am to 5pm
Thursday, Jan 21, 1pm to 8pm
Friday, Jan 22, 1pm to 8pm
