This lamp is a wide barrel shape fitting for a large side table or sideboard.  The surface of the ceramic base is achieved by using a process of smoke / pit firing. It has dramatic wave markings following the contour and let me tell ya - it's a real beauty! 


  • Overall Dimensions: 20.5” H x 12” W
  • Ceramic base dimensions: 9” H x 7.5” W
  • Hardware: Solid, brushed brass features are hand sanded by yours truly and sealed with specialty brass varnish to help slow tarnishing over time. The socket and harp are brass plated.
  • Lamp shade included: I make all shades custom for each lamp. Lamp shades are made with either 100% linen or cotton. Hardware is brass plated, spider attachment. A finial is also included to secure your shade.
  • Clay & glaze: The ceramic base of this lamp is hand-built, white earthenware that is smoke fired in a steel barrel. The pots get buried in a combination of hardwood, sawdust and straw. The surface created on the bare clay is the result of a carbon rich environment inside the barrel - creating variegated "smoke" markings. The patterning on the base will not rub off but it is a “bare” surface meaning it could absorb liquids & oils- so handle with care!
  • Cleaning instructions: This is a bare clay base and may absorb hand oils and/or cleaning products. Clean with a damp, lint free cloth & water only.
  • Socket mounted, rotary On/Off
  • Extra long 9’ cord ideal for reaching plugs behind your bed, couch or other large furniture.

Carrier will be confirmed between Emily Duke Studio & the customer at the time of shipping. Shipping & packaging cost will be invoiced to the customer. No gains will be made on shipping & packaging - all fees cover the base line of packing material and postage costs.
