    The intentionally simple design that Ian has created for these lamps places an emphasis on the quality of the stone used, allowing it to become the main focus. This attractive design allows dramatic shadows to form on the surface of the lamp, which shows the colours, textures and tones of the Ancaster Weatherbed – highlighting the striking look of the natural stone, and producing a lamp with a wonderful tactile quality.

    Ian Knapper uses blocks of British stone, each of which is carefully selected for the impeccable quality of its colours and textures. Each block is then hand-worked to produce the different parts of the lamp separately; the blocks are then bonded together, and the lamp is lovingly hand finished by our stonemasons in Staffordshire before being hand-honed and sealed for a smooth, warm finish.

    Each piece features subtle differences in the patterns and textures of the stone and the weave of the silk lampshade which is further accented by the bespoke, handmade nature of the lamps and shades.

    BRITISH STONE – ANCASTER WEATHERBED

    An interesting Jurassic limestone mined in Lincolnshire, Ancaster Weatherbed has an attractive showing of fossils and shells from the Jurassic period. Ancaster Weatherbed has a wonderfully fine grain with a warm beige colour base, accented with blues and browns, and has been made popular by the sculptures by Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.

    SILK LAMPSHADE

    Luxurious silk lampshades are woven from beautiful natural silks, allowing natural slubbing to create a subtle and unique finish once the shades are rolled and tucked.

    Each lamp is carefully matched to its lampshade, taking into consideration how the texture of the silk weave and stone will work together to create a superb finished piece.

    OTHER FEATURES

    Every lamp is carefully finished with a handsome braided cable and antique bronze fittings, and each one is finished with our mason’s mark of authenticity set into 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.
