  • Description

    This stone lamp features large circumference on the base to create a solid ‘chunky’ feel while still retaining its graceful curves.The simplicity of the design underpins and enhances the beauty of the natural stone, a persistent priority amongst all of Ian’s designs. Stone is an incredibly tactile material that is pleasing in equal parts to the eye and to the touch.

    Each block of British stone is specially selected then the deceptively simple shape is hand-carved and finished by our stonemasons in Staffordshire, ensuring the absolute finest quality of craftsmanship. The finished stone is hand-honed and sealed giving a luxurious feel.

    We have paid close attention to detail, finishing the lamp with a braided cable, complementary antique brass fittings and our mason’s mark of authentication, a solid bronze coin, set into the back of the base.

    Subtle variations in the stone and the fabric of the handmade, bespoke, silk shades guarantee that every lamp is unique.

    British Stone – Ancaster Weatherbed

    Ancaster Weatherbed is an interesting Jurassic limestone quarried in Lincolnshire, with an attractive regular showing of fossils and shells.

    It’s very fine grained with a beautiful warm beige base and blue/brown variations and has been used for sculptures by Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore.

    Silk Lampshade

    Woven from an incredibly luxurious all-natural silk, our lampshades are  painstakingly rolled and neatly tucked for a delicately unique finish. The silk shades are produced to display some natural slubbing, adding to their character.

    We go to great lengths to combine the subtle variations of each stone with the finish of each lampshade to give the completed lamp a subtle and carefully considered character of its own.

    Other Features

    We have paid close attention to detail, finishing the lamp with a braided cable, complementary antique brass fittings and our mason’s mark of authentication—a solid bronze coin—set into the back of the base.

    Thank you for your interest. Please complete, if you would like a sample of the stone and/or shade silk.

    However, stone is a natural material and variance in texture and colour does occur. At Ian Knapper we take every care to ensure stone consistency, we consider this to be part of the natural beauty of stone, as no one piece will be identical.

    The shade material is natural silk douppion. Silk is the most luxurious fibre in the world. The weaving and knitting of the fabric contains minor variations and irregularities. These are characteristics of fine silk yarn which gives the fabric its lustre and texture and should not be treated as defects.

    If the stone we have specified is not suitable then you may wish to commission us to produce your lamp in an alternative stone. Please contact us to discuss the options.
