Lueurs poétiques by Zoétises

While wandering the winding streets through Brussels I stumbled upon the most delightful of shops:

Zoétises: Lueurs poétiques located at 10 Rue de la Tulipe, Bruxelleszoetises shop2 brusselszoetises shop 3

In her small and very charming studio, Zoé creates magic with salvaged treasures and light. Antique glass cloche Zoetises lueures poetiques 2domes, steel boxes, baking tins, sieves, cages and industrial scrap all become components of her beautiful work. The light from the wide variety of incandescent bulbs highlights the aged, chipped paint and worn textures, casting strange shadows through the mesh, wire and holes of her lamps.zoetises lueurs poetiques

Zoé also shares my love of old fashioned light bulbs, with their coils, filaments and warm glow. She fears that as Belgium, like many countries, switch to compact fluorescents, the beauties at the heart of her wonderful lamps will be harder to find than the salvaged pieces that frame them. Be sure to visit the Zoétises website to see more of her fantastic pieces.

I can’t thank her enough for introducing me to the daily antique/flea and junk market in Marollen quarter of Brussels…it blew my mind…
