A wonderful large antique copper vessel with a fabulous patina, has been repurposed as a unique light by Utopia. The heavy, hand-hammered vessel has bands of large rivets and a flange.
The vessel has been renovated and transformed into a statement light with protection to retain its natural verdigris. The transformation includes: aged brass fittings to compliment the vessel including: ceiling rose, oval link brass chain, 3 x E27 lamp holders, and retro-style twisted mid-brown cable.
We think the light looks great with 3 filament LEDs.
Dimensions: maximum height 118cm. The chain and cable can be adjusted to create a shorter drop. Diameter of vessel 56cm
The Raw Collection captures the essence of materials and celebrates their elemental qualities. The main inspiration for the collection are the four natural elements: fire, air, earth and water.
Utopia's Unexpected Lights
All Utopia's lights are unique and are handmade in our studios in North Norfolk from interesting antiques and finds. They each tell a narrative and enjoy close inspection to reveal strong craftsmanship and hidden layers of interest and wonder.
Creating our distinctive lights – the narrative behind the story Reclaimed elegance – the artefacts that Utopia sources for its lights are deliciously old, usually antique, sometimes vintage, and this ‘narrative’ is reflected in their character, patina and form – Utopia celebrates the knocks, chips, and scratches of their stories. The inspired selection of the original object and the process it goes through to make it covetable and unique is what makes our products special – every lamp is a one-off.
Peace of Mind Enjoy the aesthetics of top quality heritage styling: traditional twisted fabric cable, aged metal fittings, retro-style chains and historical style plugs, whilst having the peace of mind that your light is safe, having been completely wired/rewired by experts using modern fittings.
Please note that due to the large size and heavy weight of this light it can only be collected from our gallery in Holt, North Norfolk.
