The Segment Shade from Phil Cuttance is a slip cast ceramic light shade for New Zealand furniture and lighting brand Resident. The Segment shade is cast from a simple mould created from eleven individual wedge-shaped plaster segments. Each wedge is cut at a different angle and rearranged after every production cycle, resulting in uniques shade shapes for every batch of 100 shades. The shades are cast in white china clay, sourced from Matauri bay, New Zealand.
