Spun pendant lights were inspired by traditional French spun steel shades; classic, elegant shapes re-imagined with an arresting use of the key material.
Handmade in the UK, these delicate and striking earthenware lights can shine solo, in uniform groups or mixed clusters with the other shapes in the family. Full Spun acts as an extension of the Half Spun form and, with meticulous attention to detail, a firm gesture to the traditional spun lampshade shape.
Seeking to capture and remain honest to the handmade process, the exterior of the shade is left unfinished, giving the light natural matt finish of exposed earthenware. On this matt exterior can be seen the moulding marks which have been left exposed, capturing the manufacturing process. By contrast the interior of the shade is hand-glazed, giving a high gloss finish in white, blue or yellow.
With the light switched on, the piece comes to life. The raw, tactile and sculptural quality presented by the exterior of the shade contrasts the slick finish and accent of colour from the interior, the glazed surface reflecting the light to stunning effect.
