Charred Conical Lamp
/ Sold Out
Charred Loblolly Pine, Nickel fixtures, White Linen Shade
21"H 8" Shade Diameter
Edition of 25. The graceful, petit, turned and tapered conical shape of our Loblolly lamp is charred traditionally in a stove pipe of timber, raising the grain for a deep black color that still retains the documentation of the tree’s growth. A fortuitous remnant of un-charred golden pine underscores the juxtaposition between material and process. The base is paired with nickel fixtures and a Kentucky-made white linen drum shade.
The Charred Collection evolved from the traditional roots of ancient Japanese wood construction, which emphasized a need for rot and bug tolerance while maintaining a consistent structural integrity. Our burning process, based on this model, entails binding three boards into a chimney for a controlled burn over a small firebox. The resulting boards are wire brushed and receive multiple coats of a clear zero VOC, water based finish. This ensures their durability, functionality, and longevity as an elegant and unexpected addition to a space.
