Woodsilks Autumn Peacock Large Lamp FL293 SOLD

In 1998 Barbara began designing a silk & ceramic sculptural light. Working with ceramic artists, she developed a line of wheel thrown bases for her lighting creations. Working with slab-constructed clay she carves and forms the bases and bodies integrating color and form to go with the painted silk. Thus creating free standing sculptures or winged wall creatures.

To appeal to a broader audience, Barbara developed a line of painted silk lampshades. In addition to her one-of-a-kind pieces she now offers signed limited edition lamps. Created from an original and printed on pure silk using archival inks, the silk is backed and made into a sturdy form that fits a specifically designed, hand crafted ceramic base. Printed and constructed entirely in her home studio, each lamp employs the same attention to detail as the original.

The ceramic bases have a UL approved socket and accepts a 9 watt mini fluorescent bulb. The silk can be removed for cleaning and both sides dusted or wiped with a clean damp cloth.

Autumn Peacock is a large (28" tall) printed lamp, Edition #1.
I have taken photos of it outside in natural light, as well as inside with the lamp lit - both with and without a flash. While it was pretty easy to give you an idea of the lamp unlit, it proved to be a little more difficult inside. The thing I like about Barbara's lamps is that they look just as beautiful whether they are lit or not. The art lamps produce nice soft filtered light. An accent to your room. You really can't use it as a reading light.
