Well this is a bit different- even by my standards!
I have used the 'burning' technique on wood before to add a great effect, but never quite like this....
actually, there is something similar!! this matching ceiling/suspended light i have made in the same style:
rather than burn the wood all over as i normally would to add age, colour, and character,
i have really concentrated the burning on all of the edges of the wood- especially top and bottom, this makes the effect even more unusual, this combined with the strange uneven design and build of the light creates a very unusual and almost weird but totally unique light!
you can call it rustic, modern, creepy, bold..... whatever it is- it's the only one in the entire world!
the whole light is made entirely from nothing but solid french 'Sapin' wood, the top shade section is removable, it sits on top of a brand new E27 (standard screw-in) lamp holder, it is complete with a good meter or so of cable, and a fitted in line on/off switch, all you need is a plug top to suite your country as i only have the french/EU type.
i have left the wood completely untreated as it is already quite effective, if you would like it finished or waxed or something it's no problem- just ask!
the overall size is approx 210mm wide (the shade/top part) & 430mm high.
if you would like a different design, size, style, colour.... or anything!- just ask...
i would always recommend the use of low energy/low wattage lamps/bulbs!!!
EVERYTHING SENT WORLDWIDE FOR VERY REASONABLE PRICES!
i have many other handmade/restored lights, wooden lights, wall lights, ceiling lights, vintage lanterns and more available in my store, and new items are constantly being added so please have a look around and maybe favorite me to see updates??
want to be the first to see my latest news, listings, photos, discounts!!?? please like my Facebook page to see all my news and updates!:
i am always adding pics to Instagram too, feel free to follow me:
with many years experience working with electrics i am very competent when it comes to electrics, electronics, lighting etc. and i have used all EU/BS/NF compliant components and cable, but for obvious reasons i am unable to accept any legal liability for anything i have made.
please read shop policies about shipping, returns etc...
please remember, this is totally handmade!!!- if you are looking for perfect right-angles and mm perfect measurements then you may be disappointed.
i am a human, not a machine!! ;-)
I am here to sell things so I am not fussy when it comes to accepting payment,
I am happy to accept the following:
Payment via Etsy/direct checkout
Cheque (in euros)
Payment on collection
Interested in more than one item??
I am sure we can do a deal!
If i have something ready to send i will try to send it within 1 business day, if something is made to order as many of my items are then this obviously takes longer, this depends on how many orders i am currently working on and how many of something is purchased, unfortunately i cannot constantly keep updating my times whenever my orders go up or down, so i will keep you informed at every step,
I aim to ship most items everywhere around the world, and i always send all items recorded with tracking and full value insurance against loss/damage/theft.
but this insurance is only valid if the goods are checked PRIOR to being signed for, and that any damage/breakages/missing items etc. are noted and mentioned BEFORE signing for the package!
so please check/inspect and unpack the package in front of the delivery person, if they refuse to wait then please clearly mark this in the paperwork you are signing. with something insured the person delivering should understand and appreciate the contents needs to be checked, and allow you to do so.
i will try my best to help with any items lost or damaged but i cannot be responsible for the companies delivering them.
CUSTOMS / VAT / TAX:
When items are sent to a country outside of Europe where i am based then there may be costs such as customs,tax or vat that need to be paid before the item can be delivered or collected, these costs are entirely for the customer to pay and not me, i have no control over them.
I try my best to reuse and recycle packaging/boxes etc. whenever possible, this is great for the environment and helps me to keep my shipping costs to a minimum which is passed on to my customers, so please understand that your item may be delivered in a used box/packaging which may even be labelled as something else, my priority is that it is safely received- not that it looks pretty.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Always contact me first please regarding any issues.
Due to everything being handmade and usually made to order i am NOT able to accept any returns unless something is defective or an error has been made on my part.
If something doesn't work then I will not sleep until I have resolved the problem, this includes sending replacement parts etc.
If any issues arrive due to shipping then this may require action from the customer as well as myself: items are always sent as insured but the delivery needs to be checked and any problems noted BEFORE the item is signed for.
for any damages/problems noticed after the delivery has been signed for, the process is more complicated and may require the customer/recipient to take the item and packaging etc. to be shown to their local depot of the company who delivered the item in order to proceed with the claim etc.
If for any reason a return is accepted by myself then any shipping/postage costs already paid will NOT be refunded, (these shipping/postage costs may be built into the item price even if marked as 'free shipping') i can provide proof of shipping/postage costs if required)
thank you for understanding.
As you can see, all the products for sale here are either totally handmade by me, handmade by someone else and restored by me, or simply antique/vintage. With these types of products and the fact that every item is totally unique, it is not at all possible to have them electrically tested/certified, i am very competent when it comes to using electrical and electronic components and materials, but unfortunately i cannot accept any responsibility for anything i have made or restored. It is always the choice and discretion of the customer to decide if something is safe to use. I always recommend the installation of any electrical items by a qualified electrician or competent person.
Thanks for understanding.

So I ordered this amazingly creative lamp. When I received it, excitement turned to dismay because a piece had broken in transit. I spoke with the seller, Owen, who was, from the start, totally supportive. It did not make sense to send the item back for a variety of reasons, so we discussed possible fixes. Owen came up with a good one which worked perfectly. So back to my opening statement. I ordered and am enjoying thoroughly this absolutely amazing lamp. Thank you Owen for your creativity across the board!
