The striking combination of Ancaster Weatherbed and dark slate demonstrates the dramatic look that can be achieved with natural stone, and this is further enhanced through the intentionally simple design of the piece. The clean lines and natural stone of this rectangular lamp design make it pleasing to the touch, as well as being a striking visual piece.
Hand selected blocks of British stone are chosen for their superior colouration, texture and tone, and are then hand worked into the separate components of each lamp. These are then securely bonded together to allow attractive shadows to form on the stone’s surface. Each lamp is then hand finished by our stonemasons in Staffordshire to ensure the finest quality craftsmanship, and is then sealed to give a wonderfully warm finish.
Close attention to detail has been paid with this design, and it is completed with an attractive braided cable, antique brass fittings, and our mark of authenticity – a solid bronze coin, inlaid into the base of the lamp.
Each lamp and lampshade is hand made and bespoke, and subtle differences can be found in each one guaranteeing that each is unique.
Visually, Ancaster Weatherbed is a very interesting Jurassic limestone which is mined in Lincolnshire. It features a regular showing of fossils and shells throughout.
This limestone is incredibly durable despite it’s fine grain, which gives it an even, warm, creamy base tone, often accented with blues and browns.
Impeccable douppion lampshades are woven from luxurious, natural black silk and paired with the Ancaster Weatherbed rectangle lamp. Each shade is painstakingly rolled and tucked, and shows attractive slubbing throughout the weave, adding texture and character.
As each lamp and lampshade has subtle differences, we carefully match each lamp to its ideal shade, ensuring patterns and textures are complementary to one another.
A keen eye for detail has allowed us to add the perfect finishing touches to our beautiful stone lamp. Each is completed with a braided cable, antique bronze fittings, and the Ian Knapper mason’s mark – a solid bronze coin, embedded in the base of the piece.
