The Gourd lamp is slightly irregular and perfectly imperfect!
Built up in clay using the coil and pinch technique, the ceramic base has a surface that is softly dimpled with traces of the artistís touch remaining in the texture. Thin white stripes applied by hand add another layer of texture and insure that each piece is unique. Large, ripe and full of life, the Gourd lamp adds warmth to your room.
Its been said that its all in the details. Finishing touches on this lamp include a vintage style twist cord, high quality hardware and a small gray bird finial to secure the linen shade.
Creating this collection has been a refreshing change from producing my tableware. I feel I am returning to my roots as a sculptor and find that the lamps are a wonderful vehicle for expressing forms. They are also a pleasing way to combine art and functionality.
With a simple off white linen shade to compliment the hand drawn white stripes, the Gourd lamp stands 22″ tall x 15″ wide.
