The Forager table lamp brings the outdoors inside with its generous handcarved solid Irish yew wood base, distinctive oversized mushroom shaped bulb and classic organic form. Slightly larger than our other table lamps, its understated sculptural elegance complements any interior and work.
Irish yew is an ancient timber that regularly appears in Irish history and mythology. We believe this particular yew is somewhere between 600-800 years old. Yew was planted in graveyards many years ago to deter farmers from grazing their cattle because the berries are poisonous to cattle. It regularly develops flecks of bright red and purple which develop over time due to the minerals in the soil where the tree was growing. The fittings are made of brass and aged to give a vintage feel. The dramatic retro style bulb sits on a copper stem and a fabric twisted cord and an on/off switch finish off the piece.
Your lamp will come with a handwritten label describing its particular provenance and the Copperfish stamp of authenticity.
Due to the natural materials and handmade nature of these lamps, each is unique and the colour, grain and finish of the wood will vary from lamp to lamp. All our lamps are made by hand in our studio in Rathnew, Co. Wicklow using time honoured skills and the finest materials.
All our bulbs are long-life LED and have an expected lifespan of 30,000 hours/10 years approx. Replacement bulbs can be ordered from us or you will find similar bulbs in retail stores.
