Tee Lamp, originally exhibited in 2012, is made from a hardened tee shirt. Inspired by ancient Roman statuary, the lamp is a study in negative space. The forms they are made on are scanned from life. Harry Allen’s torso serves as the male form. Of course, as a lamp the body is absent. The light  fills out the negative space where a person once was.

Eventually we hope to add many different human shapes, sizes, sexes, and postures to the line. Tee shirts are one of the most iconic, ubiquitous garments of our age and they are also great conveyors of identity, so look forward to some messaging also! 

Each Tee Lamp is comprised of two shirts, to give them strength. Color and graphics are integral to the tees selected for use. Each is essentially unique and we are making them one by one in the Harry Allen studio. Please feel free to contact us for custom orders.

Available Tee lamps are displayed in the store.
