We custom produce our lamps to order. We can often create and ship lamps within a few days and have some styles assembled and ready to ship. For certain designs we have a longer lead time 4-6 weeks) as we need to custom turn each wood component to match the fired ceramic form. If you have a specific timeline for receiving your lamps please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888 502 2800 so that we can best meet your timing needs.
We chose mid-fire stoneware because of its durability and the exceptional range of glaze character. We produce in small batches, each kiln load with its own set of subtle details, color variations, and character. This artisanal process makes each lamp unique. We carefully match pairs so that they partner well together.
We achieve our new Fossil Gray glaze by applying multiple glazes in sequence and carefully firing to achieve the subtle vertical striation reminiscent of a Scandinavian Hare's Fur glaze.
Obsidian is a rich black satin glaze with a beautiful, subtle texture.
Our Anthracite glaze has a metallic almost black finish. We apply it over our two custom surface treatments, Carved and Bouclé which yeilds a luxurious pooling finish as the glaze begins to run on the surface of the vessels.
White Quartz has a subtle crackle and an almost crystaline quality.
Our Charcoal is a rich dark gray with a subtle hint of sage. The top detail on the Charcoal yields a beautiful range of textures and draping qualities.
Pigeon is a beautiful rich Celadon/Gray. It's surface is rich and glossy with occasional specs and details.
Special surface finishes
We have three custom surface treatments. Our hand carved Canyon finish in Obsidian is available on any of our cylindrical forms - Porter, Heyward, Baxter, Holly and Stinson. The horizontal carving evokes eroded rock formations. Our Bouclé and Carved finishes are available on the Miller, Lancaster and Laurel. Each one of a kind hand carved vessel is glazed in our rich Anthracite glaze.
We now offer three wood finishes, Black Walnut, a rich ebonized Black Walnut and White Oak. All of our locally milled wood parts are meticulously created and finished.
We use the finest metal hardware on our lamps. Our solid brass components are carefully hand finished in two finishes, satin brass and a rich solid blackened brass.
Our lampshades are produced by hand by a family owned company. Every lampshade is beautifully crafted in white and natural linen. We match the metal hardware on our shades to the hardware on the lamp.
