Leaf Table Lamp
The Leaf table lamp combines beautifully fine textured silk habotai fabric with merino wool embedded with felt resistant leaf shaped discs.
The lampshade is handmade using the traditional practice of wet felting with the contemporary Nuno felting technique.. This involves applying soapy water to the fibres before rubbing and rolling the fabric and fibres, until they intermingle and fuse together, to form a permanent bond. The lampshade is mounted on a beeswaxed, solid English oak base with antique brass fittings and twisted linen flex cord.
The Lampshade is available is 15 x 15 x 30cm.
The Base is 15 x 15 x 4cm
