Ballast

Felled in Western Australia in the 1800s, the Jarrah wood used in this collection made its way to Ireland as ballast on emptied prison ships. This “Swan River Mahogany” found its second life as a Steam Age railway sleeper in a far-flung corner of rural Ireland. These salvaged hardwood lamps were milled from the few remaining Jarrah sleepers we managed to track down. The form is fastened with copper boat nails creating lamps that hold the weight of history in beautifully still sculptural forms.
