The imperfect perfect, that’s who we are as humans, as makers.
The basis of Hennepin Made’s product design and development is in the maker’s hand. With Lacuna we put this idea into the core of the production process. Thinking about how making each piece of glass is a fluid rhythm of material, time, and craft; there is a familiar sequence of events that are replicated over and over. This journey still is never the same with slight adjustments and nuances, and at times the process seems effortless, while other times it feels much more arduous where we need to steer with more assertiveness and exert a more explicit control.
What distinguishes each and every Lacuna is the human touch. The maker of the glass brings a unique character to each light, changing the form and shape just the right amount and embracing "imperfections."
From this point of view, which looks at objects sculpturally in relation to light and space, we can see the potential relevance the Lacuna collection in uplifting and engaging forms in nature during a time of cultural upheaval, Lacuna can inspire contemplation, play, and delight.The soft lighting that gently fills the room elevates the everyday and creates art at a more accessible level.

This embracing of imperfection nods to Noguchi who created the Akari series, a term meaning “light as illumination,” after observing traditional lantern construction in Gifu, Japan.
