Loblolly Conical Lamp
Loblolly Pine, Nickel Fixtures, White Linen Shade
21"H 8" Shade Diameter
Edition of 25. A graceful, petit, turned and tapered conical shape sets off the ovular grain pattern of rounded pine. The base is paired with nickel fixtures and a Kentucky-made white linen drum shade. The hand-painted inset channel in our custom blended Conifer green or Beech Bark gray completes the design. Each piece receives multiple coats of a clear high durability, zero VOC, water-based finish.
Pinus teada l. This massive pine was the last of her age in the North Charleston neighborhood where it had grown stout over 80 plus ripe years. Too stately to go to waste and so as not to end her days as mulch at the city dump, we endeavored, with the support of a local tree service, to have her cut into long lengths for our use. The striking wood garnered from her trunk, with pale stripes and blueing from our humid climate, has made each of the pieces in the Loblolly Collection a unique celebration of pine’s stria-like grain and the environment in which this pine grew.
