New additions to the family. 

Limpid Lights continues on the principle of manipulating the light by moving the lightsource. The fresh and bright light of LED can be manually masked with various handblown glass shades. In this way the light can be playfully adapted to a more fuzzy, hazy, smoky, dusky, foggy, blurry and or coloured light.
