Pressed Terracotta Lampshade
Hand pressed three-tone Terracotta Lamp stained with Oxide powder designed by Lydia Hardwick.
Separate clays are rolled out flat; irregular blobs are torn off from each one and pressed into the inner wall of a thick plaster bowl mold until full. Once demoulded and dried, it is fired to 1100oC.
The fired lamp has smooth external surface and a rough undulating interior with warm camouflage patterning. Hung low it becomes a decorative feature for a room.
