Aging with dignity: Bone china with unlacquered copper.
From our own workshop: We combined the translucent bone china shades, which we acquired along with the last remaining stock of Magnussen’s Porcelight lamps in Sweden, with unpainted copper tubing to create floor and wall lamps. Copper is particularly well suited to the warm light of these shades. During the sophisticated manufacturing process, the copper tube is filled with sand so it will not break when it is bent, and a thread is soldered into the cable outlet for strain relief. Another complex step involves precisely aligning the frame. The wall and table lamps are shipped with a fabric cable as well as a cord switch and plug made of Bakelite® – unobtrusive in appearance, solid in design.
