Hand Painted Wooden Lamp in Blue and Green

This lamp is turned out of lime wood on a lathe in two parts which are joined prior to painting. Then the slower process of building up the colours begins, which are painted on the spinning lathe and I keep painting until I feel that it has reached a point where the colours sit together harmoniously. For this lamp I turn the lather off and I paint the vertical lines by hand. A wax polish is applied and then it is wired with quality components as described above. The construction of this lamp has been approved by the lighting association.

This is a new painted treatment of a familiar shape. The lamp is painted in a base layer of a lovely blue grey then painted with thin ink blue pin stripes which describe the shape beautifully before splaying out into my popular skirt motif. A green cotton reel is wound with pale blue thread and above that a decorative section of a rich dark grey painted with thin black lines, the tiniest traces of gold leaf can be seen if you look really close.

31 cm high and included is a 20cm plain linen shade.

Nickel safety switched lamp holder, and approx. 2m of gold cable with a black plug.
