Artist Hiros Lee, aka Hirosart, will transport you under the sea every time you switch on one of her lamps. Inspired by sea divers' underwater exploration, she combines resin and wood to create scenes in which humans and marine life meet for the first time. The blue-tinted resin takes on a brighter glow when turned on, as the light showcases the scuba diver (or divers), making it appear as though they are coming upon an incredible discovery.

Lee views her lamps as more than just a functional object—they are a work of art that ignites the imagination. “Their visit is peaceful, short, but enough to form a strong bond between them,” she says of the characters in the pieces. Still, there is an air of mystery to each resin lamp that encourages us to fill in the blanks of the story, particularly when it comes to lights out. The blue glow emitted from the lamps is both serene and a bit eerie, too, making it a unique addition to a bedroom or living room.

Lee’s resin lamps are now available in the Hirosart Etsy shop.
