The piece is entirely made by hand through several stages of making that bring together a range of techniques. A wooden dome block was turned on a lathe to be used as a mould to shape the fabric over. The fabric is then boiled in a stiffener and placed over the mould whilst hot, with pins holding it in place. Once dried the shade is brushed with warm beeswax.
The steel for the stand and shade frame is hand cut, drilled, heated and forged to create the various forms. The pieces are braze welded together, then the joints are hand cleaned with various files and patinated before waxing. The shade is stitched to the steel frame, before the light is wired. Due to the handmade production of this lamp there may be slight variations in the finish of the shade resulting in a unique 'sculpted' character for each piece.
