Have you noticed the striking iridescent sheen of all lamps from the Lustre series,  Tom Dixon’s  first ever stoneware pendant lights? Do you know that it is due to a  a secret glaze containing minerals and precious metals which was discovered after continued exploration of extraordinary metallic finishes. The lamps are handmade in a Dutch family-run factory established over 5-generations and as a result of this process a totally unique and unrepeatable finish for each individual object is achieved. The lamps are available from lighting55 in 4 shapes Flat, Round, Square and Wedge:

“The iridescent sheen is created by firing the stoneware shades at 1200°C using a top-secret glaze containing minerals and precious metals. The end result is a striking colour change effect reminiscent of peacock feathers or oil slicks on water. The handmade process results in a totally unique and unrepeatable finish for each individual object. No two shades look the same as the glaze fixes to the stoneware in an unpredictable way.  This produces a wide spectrum of colour across each light, ranging from a pale lime to a deep bottle green.”
