Frequently Asked Questions

How long do bulbs last?


All bulbs are long-life A+ LED and have a lifespan of approximately 30,000 hours (3 hours per day for 30 years).




How long will it take for my Copperfish lamp or light to be made?


Occasionally we may have a lamp in stock, however, generally every lamp is handmade to order so depending on what you're looking for, can take up to 4 weeks. If you're looking for something sooner than this please contact us directly and we can advise.




What type of bulbs do you use?


We design and source a range of different shape and sized long-life, energy saving LED bulbs. They have an approximate life span of 30,000 hours (3 hours per day for 30 years).




Where do you source your wood?


We personally source every piece of wood that comes into the studio, primarily salvaged and storm-damaged. We are continually on the look out for unusual timber, preferably with some history!




I have a piece of wood at home that is sentimental. Can you make me a lamp with that?


We probably can. Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.




Do you offer a delivery service?


Yes. We deliver free of charge to Ireland and the UK. We can deliver to the rest of the world, price available on request.




Where do I get replacement bulbs?


Our LED bulbs have an approximate life span of 30,000 hours (3 hours a day for 30 years) so with normal usage, your bulb should give you many years of use. If for whatever reason you require a new bulb, there are some similar style of bulbs available in top lighting shops. For some of the designs that are unique to us, we can supply them directly.




Are the lights strong enough to read under?


The bulbs we use are equivalent to a 30 or 40 watt traditional filament bulb, however, our LED filaments are dyed to mimic a synthetic candlelight. They are not designed as task lighting and are atmospheric by nature. The non-scientific theory is that you can read a newspaper under them, but after a while you will get up and turn on the big light!




Do your lamps work in continental Europe?


All lamps can be made with plugs suitable for Continental Europe. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.




What payment methods do you accept?


We accept payment through Paypal and credit card.
