STORM CANDLE LANTERN
Lead Finial early 1900s, contemporary commissioned ceramic base
Wiltshire, England Sold
H 40cm (16") W 20cm ( 8")
The century old lead finial throws light and shadow patterns while protecting the candle flame - effective both "outside and in". Its salt kiln fired vase was commissioned from Ian Morrison's highly regarded Knighton Mill Pottery* studio in deepest Wiltshire. A sculptural piece by day, adding atmospheric light at night.
* Ian trained with the Leach Pottery in St Ives and in Asia,
