What is Ignis Inception?

Ignis– fire, transformation, passion, light.
Inception– establishment, point of creation, beginning.

-True modern alchemy-

Ignis inception stands as a creative platform for the artisan, Harry Brown, in which he expresses reimaginings of philosophical and theoretical concepts by means of lighting sculptures and other ambient creations. Often gathering discarded or disused items and scrap material Harry then uses their form and properties to inspire the design and function of new, more valuable creations. As a by-product of this process, much of the items are limited in number and all are unique with their own stories. All the creations are hand-crafted, fusing the old and the new to produce high-quality items bursting with character, innovation and sage consultation.
