Portland Roach oval lamp with pebble-coloured douppion silk lampshade, braided cable, complementary antique brass fittings and an embedded mason’s mark of authentication.
The natural beauty of the stone emerges through the intentional simplicity of the this lamp’s shape. Highlighting these positive qualities is always Ian’s priority when designing anything in stone. The result is a piece of stonework that capitalises on the inherently tactile nature of stone as a material to be equally pleasing both to the touch and to the eye.
Each piece of British stone is specially selected to be of the highest quality. These stones are then hand-worked into oval shapes by our stonemasons in Staffordshire, ensuring the absolute finest quality of craftsmanship. A slight chamfer is applied to the otp and bottom of the design to enhance its curves and create a shadow. The finished stone is then hand-honed and sealed to create a surprisingly warm feel to the touch.
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.
