Figurative Stem Table Lamp (Petrol)

Camilla Bliss
£1,050
The Petrol Figurative Stem Table Lamp is part of the Guardian Collection by multidisciplinary designer, Camilla Bliss and features an elegant stem-like form with a low gloss surface, and subtle faces (or 'guardians') that peer out from the clay at the top. The shade is sold separately.

The inspiration for the Guardian Collection came from a need to express sentimentality. Each face acts as a protector, ensuring the owner of the lamp is bathed in light, warmth and well-being. These ancient symbols of the sun, bravery, power and regalia were developed especially for this collection, to bring strength and a sense of nurturing to the home. Carefully crafted, each lamp base is a statement piece perfect for enhancing the most exceptional interiors. Shade not included.

Process

Colours and materials are intentionally chosen for their cultural associations and functionality. Camilla uses earthenware clay, pushing it into handcraft moulds to craft an elongated stem with either lion or guardian faces peering out at the top. The deep, petrol glaze absorbs the light, creating a subtle silhouette.
