Flax pendant in solid porcelain by Jeremy Cole at Scott+Cooner

Dazzling . . . Jeremy Cole is a renowned ceramics artist based in New Zeland, where he works almost solely in white porcelain. Scott+Cooner has snagged one of the first -- if not the only -- lighting pieces available in the United States, shown above. Called Flax, its design is inspired by the shape of individual flax seeds. Cole's influences are related to nature, and he's created some gorgeous lighting inspired by the aloe plant and cymbidium orchids.

His work is in various museums worldwide, and has been commissioned by Harry Winston, Bulgari, and Kelly Hoppen, among others.
