A simple terracotta pendant light shade with a glazed white finish on the inside and a divine unglazed natural terracotta finish on the outside. The warm and rich terracotta colour contrasts beautifully with the white glaze to make for a classic and timeless pendant light shade. Each shade features a central hole in the top for the lamp fitting to be fed through as well as four outer holes for heat dispersion. Please note the lamp fitting is not included in or supplied with the shade. The light shade can either be used with a new lighting fixture or to replace an existing pendant shade. Such is the beauty and versatility of this shade and terracotta as a material, that these pendant shades look great in various different rooms and locations. You may choose to hang them in a cluster or a row above a kitchen island or table, or along a corridor. Due to the warmth of the natural terracotta finish, they also look great when used in bedrooms or on low hanging bedside lights. Designed by Sue Pryke, each pendant shade is individually made by hand in England. A fantastic addition to our lighting collection, the terracotta pendant shades are simply stunning. As each on is handmade there may be slight variations in each piece, which is indicative of the material and the hand made processes. Sue Pryke is a British homeware designer who has designed her own collection after having had a successful career which has involved collaborations with the likes of Virgin Atlantic, John Lewis and Marks and Spencer's.
Sue Pryke is a British homeware designer, who started her journey into ceramics at a small pottery in Lincolnshire. After graduation Sue's first job was at Wedgwood as a shape designer, guided by the design team she was taught to understand the breadth of ceramic form. Since then Sue has had a successful career which has involved collaborations with a wide range of clients, from Virgin Atlantic to High Street retailers such as John Lewis, Marks and Spencer's and prestigious manufacturers such as Wedgwood and Royal Doulton.
Sue is inspired by the everyday and the ordinary; material qualities, textures and the interaction we have with objects. Recently Sue wanted to create her own collection of objects that sit comfortably in the home, that aren't awkward, audacious or tricky to use or care for, but are familiar, have fluency and sit effortlessly. To bring this range together she collaborated with small factories and studios in England working with traditional craftsmanship, materials and techniques to make high quality products made by hand.
