Named after the friend and fellow potter who inspired and helped me, the process was long and drawn out. It started with a Vaseline smeared lampshade and a clay model. From there we made a rough cast, followed by a couple more clay models and a better plaster cast. Several casts later the final case and mould were made and tested. The working moulds ready, the final lamp was cast in bone china, and decorated with ceramic transfers made from hand drawn doodles.
The resulting COSMOS and BRAID designs measure 30cms across at the bottom and are 30cms tall. It comes with your choice of coloured retro-style fabric cord and lampholder. It has been designed so that it can be easily unscrewed from the lampholder and washed in soapy water or the dishwasher, meaning it is suitable for use in kitchens and dinning areas.
RRP: £175 including a choice of coloured cord.
