“Relics from the Future” Garden Solar Light Triptych

Commissioned group of solar powered garden lamps.

Created for a drought tolerant backyard makeover in Chico, CA, we’re calling them “Relics from the Future.” To us, they look like old lamp posts from an otherworldly antique store: one that deals in time traveling relics, alien artifacts, and antiques from lost, but technologically advanced, civilizations. The new owner tells us they enjoy making up a new story about their origin for each new dinner guest.

We are really excited about the aesthetic and construction ideas we developed for these pieces. This triptych is the inspiration for a new “Relics from the Future” line from Rusty Vine Studio that will include indoor and outdoor pieces from large to small.
