This stone lamp has been crafted to create a dramatic contrast between the beauty of these two natural stones. Highlighting this natural beauty is always Ian’s priority when working with stone. As an innately tactile material, stone is equally pleasing to the touch and to the eye.
Each block of British stone is specially selected so that we can source only the finest quality of natural stone. Each of the oval shapes are hand-worked separately before being bonded together to create vivid shadows. The lamps are hand-finished by our award-winning stonemasons, ensuring the absolute finest quality of craftsmanship. The finished stone is hand-honed and sealed giving a surprisingly warm 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.
Portland Roach is a distinctive and immediately recognisable, open-textured limestone.
Unique and full of character and interest, Roach has many holes scattered throughout, containing large grey shell fragments, including turreted gastropods (Portland Screws) as well as large clams.
The stone is a typical creamy/white Portland colour, although the large concentrations of grey shells can darken the overall colour.
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.
