These lamps are made by covering a raw white porcelain lamp base
with black engobe and carving the images directly while the clay is
still leatherhard. The engobe fires from a flat matt to a slight
sheen, no glaze is applied. The process is called "scraffito" and looks
somewhat like a wood carving. The larger lamps are wired with three-way
switches and the medium have single push-thru sockets.
Though most are photographed without shades, we can provide shades
for any of our lamp bases. We actually prefer that you purchase your shade
locally after you get the lamp from us; you'll get exactly what you want and
won't have to pay extra to get it shipped from us to you.
