I was just about to turn in for the night and then I came across this and decided this was too good to wait till tomorrow to post. Too good isn’t a good descriptor. Simply smashing hits it right on the nose …or the dish.

This is the work of German artist, Ingo Maurer who says he’s a fan of “slow motion explosions, like in the film by Antonioni called “Zabriskie Point,” where he blew up a castle in slow motion.” He originally called the lamp ‘Zabriskie Point,’ then later changed it to “Porca miseria!,” which means “What bad luck!” Yeah, I guess it would suck if that happened in my kitchen.

Now, if you want to know how to make one, well, then you’re screwed cause I can’t tell you. But if I’ve inspired you to throw all your dishes against the wall and do something creative with the pieces then I give you two snaps and a circle around the world. In any case, you can read more about Maurer and his exploding chandelier from the 1987 Washington Post article right here.

Have a smashing evening!
