Designing for the Fall Season

Pottery was traditionally made for a purpose. They stored water for the dry season and oil for cooking and light. Today these functional designs are converted into lamps with the purpose of providing light and interest to a room. The textural pots convey a rugged sense of nature and a warm style of gathered details.

All are made by hand throwing terra cotta clay on a potter’s wheel. The glaze is a dark charred brown with purposeful distressing, accenting the underbody of terra cotta. The glaze is then finished with a final clear glaze. The mountings are of steel with a bronze finish. Each has a matching pottery finial. The two shade choices are a canted shade in a Linen Irish fabric or an empire shade in a textured Hopsack fabric.
