Myth Concept – Hartour Lantern


This is a far more utilitarian piece from me. I need to conceptualize the city of Hartour, the setting for the first chapter of Myth… So, the first thing I like to do is figure out lighting. What lights a city at night? Street lamps, duh.

This was made quickly, in about fifteen minutes. It’s meant to be a single piece of textured crystal with an emitter crystal in the ball at the top. An electric field is created by the spiral (which is fed by cords that feed into the base) that activates the crystal and engages it into emitting light.

I like it.

Do you?

  1. It seems oversized and impractical. The base is too wide and it has an excess of supports.

    • The entire Aelphi aesthetic is oversized and excessive. They’re Rome, if ran by Donald Trump. Anything which has a function that’s not vital, is generally pushed to an extreme of form. Functional things, like life support systems, transportation, etc are designed by different races and elaborated upon in style by the Aelphi… so… you telling me that it seems oversized and impractical, means it’s succeeding. 😉
