Hawthorn Orchid Lamp


A very characteristic Hawthorn branch with an almost unique Orchid like Trumpet top. This fallen Branch retrieved from a hedgerow floor on a hillside, from what is geographically known as watch Hill, but locally known as “The Hay” just outside the small market town of Cockermouth in Cumbria. Fitted with an internally routed 240v mains voltage LED warm white lamp, that really does show the beauty of the natural grain on display at the “Trumpeted top”  Seated on a Steamed Beech plinth, and finished with Osmo Oil, this lamp is a real statement piece in any room.

Lamp at highest point 1000mm
Plinth base diameter. 270mm x 45mm

All of my pieces are created from the ground up with care, love and attention to detail. I like to think of it as not work, but a passion! Akin to that of any artist or sculptor. Your purchase therefore becomes not only a business transaction, but a bond we share for our love of design, nature and our environment that translates to functionality.

Wabi Sabi, ”perfect imperfection”, a Japanese phrase that epitomises this entire collection. Please do take the time to consider this and it’s concept carefully before your purchase.

Timber generally is a live organic medium. In short it can be unpredictable. After a lifetime of avoiding splits, cracks and knots in my work, I now delight in their beauty and characteristics. Likewise please accept that this piece may change in various ways overtime. Ultimately however it is, by design, not built to be perfect. It is it’s imperfections that make it to both you the consumer, and me, it’s creator – Perfect!
