Table light with a research theme in porcelian and steel.
Search light in white porcelain with rabbits and mice searching and researching, like true scientists and explorers.
There is a rabbit with a magnifying glass examining a hole in the dome, a mouse is taking notes; Another rabbit has a tape measure and a mouse assisting him. There’s a mouse writing formula on a board in a lab and there is a mouse writing at a desk surrounded by books. There are strange holes in the dome which need to be examined; they wonder why the light goes on and off and they try to find out if there is a pattern to it or not.
A decorative light whether the light is on or off. Stand this table lamp on your table, desk or side table so you can see the various scientists in action.
The bulb is LED and gives a nice warm light. The LED also keeps the porcelain cool when the light is on.
Cord is about 3 meter or 9 feet long. In some countries you might need an adaptor to make the plug (EU) fit your sockets, alternatively you can replace it. The cord has a cotton cover which goes well with the natural white porcelain and the blackish metal frame.
The diameter of the light shade is 14 cm or 5 1/2 inches
Size of the frame: H/W/D 50/25/25 cm (19 3/4 inches, 10/10 inches) The frame is custom made for this lamp by a local black smith.
Each piece is handmade by me in porcelain clay. Porcelain clay is different in composition from other clays, because of this it’s stronger. Because it’s stronger one can create much thinner items; and where it’s thin, it’s translucent, also typical for porcelain. It need to be fired at a temperature which is higher than average for other clays as well. It’s fired twice, once at a low temperature, after which I can apply glazes. And the second firing at the high temperature were it goes translucent. Naturel porcelain is white, but one can add pigments or stains to the clay to give it other colors, the color is then throughout. When a glaze is applied, it is only on the surface.
Dust regularly on the outside with a soft brush. If need be, clean with a brush and toothpaste and rinse well. Dry well and make sure the bulb and electrics don’t get wet!
All my items come carefully wrapped. For this I use as much recycled boxes, wrap as possible, to safe the environment and on shipping costs.
