Chimney Light (2009)
earthenware clay, terracotta, sand, white tin glaze
The Chimney Lights are manufactured by Viaduct Furniture. The lamps are produced using a technique known as slip-casting (liquid clay poured into plaster moulds) – they are cast with white earthenware clay. They are produced in a pottery studio in Wales and utilise the natural clay of the region.
After casting, they are hand painted with a terracotta slip which has an addition of 25% sand. The painting process takes place on a potter’s wheel.
