Lamp Bases

Lamp Bases

Our Lamp Bases are decorated using the Sgraffito, (Italian: “scratched”) technique. It consists of covering the piece with a white slip and then scratching through this layer in such a way that the pattern emerges from the body beneath. It is highly skilled and no two of our pieces can be the same as everyone is hand drawn and coloured individually by hand. After a lamp has been thrown, it is allowed to dry to a leather hard stage when it is turned, finished and a layer of white slip applied. The design is then drawn onto the lamp and it is then allowed to fully dry over a number of days before it fired for the first time in the bisque kiln. This first firing drives off impurities and fires the raw clay into a proper ceramic body. The colour is then added to the design and the piece will be fired again in the gloss kiln for the final finish.
