Grain

Project Info

Pushing the boundaries of the heritage craft of wood-turning, these lamps are the first lathe-turned translucent timber lights.

At home in domestic, hospitality and office environments, these unique lamps, turned from whole pieces of storm-fallen or surgeon-felled ash, nourish the need for nature in interiors.

By day, the live-edge forms bring a sense of the outside in. When illuminated, the glow highlights each grain interruption, fault or blemish, making visible the history of the tree, from bark to heart.

The craftmanship involved in turning these pieces has, until now, been used mostly for bowls and hollow forms: Grain creates a contemporary application for this heritage skill.
