Wendy Ward Lighting was born from a fascination of the translucency of porcelain and its interaction with light. Our designs centre around the delicacy, transparency and luminosity of porcelain and with a passion to contemporize traditional porcelain production we strive to challenge the boundaries between traditional and emerging technologies, to create functional, desirable products that are lifestyle orientated.
Light is a vital element in life, defining spaces, depicting stories and enhancing wellbeing, without it we could not live. We believe lighting should embody much more than aesthetic, something that is not just purely visual, but embraces all of the senses, reaching people emotionally. Through an innovative approach to lighting we aim to enrich a user's experience of a space, creating an environment that suits their needs, personalising an interior.
