With its unusual mushroom shaped LED bulb and autumnal colours, the Forager table lamp would not look out of place on the mossy forest floors of Co. Wicklow. Handmade from ancient Irish Yew and copper fittings, this distinctive lamp emits a warm amber glow and works beautifully as a decorative table light in any contemporary setting.
This particular lamp is made from Irish yew, salvaged from Co. Kildare. We believe this wood 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. Yew regularly develops flecks of bright red and purple. These colours develop over time and are due to the minerals in the soil where the tree was growing.
Each lamp is unique, 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 Delgany, Co. Wicklow and each comes with a handwritten label describing its provenance. All our bulbs are LED and have an expected lifespan of 30,000 hours/10 years approx.
