Here's some text from Kiki about the lamps and also a glass carafe that is part of the collection:

Bottled Lamps (22 x 22 x 30cm, glass)

Lamps inspired on the beautiful glass bottles of medieval times. These bottles were mainly used to store herbs and liquor. The subtle contrast of the matte and clear glass gives a magic appearance, but also shows patterns inspired on the scenery around the table and kitchen in medieval times. Herbs, kitchen tools, sugar-tongs, deers of pate and cups form a neat play of light. Every lamp in the series is different and therefore unique.

Bottled Carafe (40 x 40 x 53 cm, glass)

A Carafe inspired on the beautiful glass bottles of medieval times these bottles were mainly used to store herbs and liquor. The subtle contrast of the matte and clear glass gives a magic appearance, but also shows patterns inspired on the scenery around the table and kitchen in medieval times. Herbs, kitchen tools, sugar-tongs, deers of pate and cups form a neat play with the liquor that can be stored into this giant bottle.
