A rectangle lamp in Portland Roach, with contrasting slate inset and black douppion silk lampshade, complementary antique brass fittings, braided cable, and an embedded makers mark of authentication.
Ian places a high emphasis on the stone used in each piece by using deceptively simple design, allowing the featured material to become the main focus. This demonstrates the striking contrast of the stone choice, and highlights the drama that can be achieved with natural stone. An incredibly tactile material, stone should be equally pleasing to the eye as it is to the touch.
British stone is specially selected by the block, then each part of the lamp is hand-worked separately before being bonded together, a process which creates attractive, prominent shadows on the lamp’s surface. Our stonemasons in Staffordshire painstakingly hand finish each lamp, ensuring fine quality craftsmanship, before the stone is hand-honed and sealed to impart a surprisingly warm feel.
Each lamp is finished 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 to guarantee authenticity.
Due to the natural silk and stone and the bespoke, handmade nature of each piece, subtle variations guarantee that each lamp is unique.
