Dark Lichen Sconce II

Charlotte Kingsnorth
Dark Lichen Sconce II by London-based industrial artist Charlotte Kingsnorth. Inspired by growth and form in nature, this decorative sconce is an abstract feature piece, complete with a shelf perfect for holding a candle or curiosities.

Dark Lichen Sconce II is part of the Processing Lichen collection featuring patinated bronze pieces developed by industrial artist and designer Charlotte Kingsnorth launched during London Craft Week in 2019. This sconce design explores a darker and deeper patination process, with the signature lichen-like blooms running across its surface.

Each piece in this collection showcases a new technique inspired by organic lichen fungi. Layers of chemicals and pigments have been applied to heated bronze to create a rich and expressive surface. The resulting patina is rich in colour and natural mark making.
