"The idea is to turn the exterior use of this material and create objects for domestic use," explains Kral.

The Terracotta lamps have a matt exterior and are finished with a glossy white glaze inside.

Light shines from an open cone that rests on a base shaped like a milk bottle, with options for one or three shades.

Black cord connects the shade and base tops then runs out the bottom to the power supply.

Tomas Kral has also designed a set of small silicon pots and a stationary case that clamps pencils between its jaws.
