decolight's Shop Announcement

Welcome to decolight. I have been designing and making table, wall and ceiling lamps in my own unique style based on the wonderful geometry and symmetry of the Art Deco period for three decades. I have had the pleasure of working on some great
restoration projects at times and have even made lights as large as myself for some installations!

All lights listed here are designed and made by myself from quality materials. The edges are all patinaed copper in a metallic almost-black finish. Lamp fittings, cords and globes included are for standard use in Australia.
Table lamps come with classic stepped bases which I make myself from wood painted with several coats of enamel in a marbling technigue. This allows for lighter weight and less expense in shipping while still achieving a beautiful finish.

A little bit about the glass used. Opaque with slight colour swirls and irregular features such as ripples and seeds (tiny bubbles). Made in the U.S, glass is mouth blown into a long cylinder which is then rolled while still hot onto powdered pigments to pick up colour. Then the cylinder is split down the middle and flattened into a sheet and annealed (slowly cooled) This means no two pieces of glass, even from the same sheet are identical. I use the character of the the glass: texture, grain, direction, to enhance the design.
