Lamp "Lithophany

The special feature: Only when backlit do you see the whole motif! Lithophane, from the Greek lithos "stone" and phainein "to make visible, to shine, to appear", is a relief depiction in translucent material, which only unfolds its effect in the backlight. This is an ancient craft that is only mastered by a few masters in Austria. The motif of the lithophane originates from Ettore Moschetti, Italy, and was cast in Austria in wafer-thin porcelain. The rare craft of lithophane in contemporary design!
