Our Lady (2013) is the biggest piece in the collection, well fit for spacious environments and period buildings. Its name is inspired by the classic iconography of the Madonna, as she is usually depicted as the brightest and most important component in paintings and other works of art. The Our Lady ceiling design lamp is made in oxidised bronze.

Angela started her Wrapped Collection as a result of her studies on the effects of organic oxidation on bronze and on the quirky and schizophrenic nature of this metal. The marks left by this process emerge from the underlying layers thus transforming the original texture and giving new life to the substance/matter. Another founding concept of this collection is the use of concentric circles that mimic the ripple effect produced by an object dropped into a calm body of water. To Angela, the circle is the most interesting and appealing shape. Its perfect symmetry and natural smoothness deliver a feeling of tranquillity and wholesomeness. By overlapping these concentric circles, Angela plays with the intersections of the lamp’s structure and creates areas where light and shadow meet and contrast, at times highlighting, at times obscuring each other.
