A beautiful, handmade wooden pendant light shade with a simple shape and stunning natural finish. Each wooden pendant shade is individually hand turned by myself from a single piece of Ash and then sanded by hand to create a very smooth, tactile finish. The large shade is (approx) 24cm in diameter, 9.5cm in height and features a two centimetre thick wall. As the shades are made to order, different dimensions can be requested. The natural colour and grain of the Ash wood is magnificent, and so the light shades are left untreated, providing a matt finish. By not treating the wood with any oils or waxes, it is possible to fully appreciate and enjoy the tremendous character in the wood's grain and the beautiful natural colour tones. The English Ash wood used for the shades is sustainably sourced within England and much of it has been naturally stained by "Black Heart", a non-fungal stain common in Ash. This staining only serves to increase the character of the wood and uniqueness of each pendant shade. The warmth and softness that natural wood adds to an interior setting means they are very versatile in where they can be used. Whether it be on pendant lights in a kitchen, hallway or in a bedroom, they look fantastic. Each shade features a 38mm central hole in the top of the shade to fit an e27 lampholder (Please note neither the lamp holder, shade rings or any other lamp fittings are included with the shade). The lampholder fits into the top of the shade, which is held firmly in place between two shade rings screwed either side of the shade opening. An e27 LED bulb with a maximum of 8W must be used with the shade. The bulb shown in the images is a large globe shaped bulb (6W) with a diameter of 9.5cm, which therefore protrudes slightly from the bottom of the shade. However if you prefer not to see the bulb, a golf ball bulb can be used which will not protrude from the bottom of the shade. Designed by Alastair Matthews, each pendant shade is individually made by hand in my workshop near Saffron Walden in Essex. The light shades are made to order and so there will be a lead time of between two to four weeks depending on the quantity required. A fantastic addition to our lighting collection, the wooden pendant shades are simply stunning. As each one is handmade using a natural material, there may be slight variations in each shade, which is indicative of the material and the hand made process.
