I am a huge fan of MacKenzie Childs the table and home furnishings company. We are honored that several times they have purchased mannequins from us which they turned into incredible lamps like these:
A quick google search allowed me to find about the designer who transforms these mannequins into a glorious work of art and it is Sacha Lancia (love that name) who is based in Fresno, Ca.
Check out this article on the MacKenzie-Childs blog to read how Sacha takes ordinary items (like mannequins) and transforms them into extraordinary creations. Sacha is also a talented decoupage artist and I hope we want work with her to do some decoupage designs on used dress forms. We love to epicycle them into functional art.
