Crook of Osiris
The Crook of Osiris is designed to be artistic, sculptural and practical. While the lamp can provide ample brightness to almost any sized room (with cones off) it is in smaller dark rooms that this lamp has maximum impact. This piece omits a dull ambient warmth (with cones on), not too dissimilar to the radiant glow of the slow burning embers left over from a raging fire. In this form it totally redefines it’s space. Rather than the lamp itself radiating light, it instead projects the light onto miscellaneous surfaces. As these illuminated surfaces reflect the warm copper tones it essentially turns the room itself into the light source.
Note: Special thanks to the Pierce sisters for inspiring this build!
Hey, look what I found!
- Structurally the Crook of Osiris features 2 removable cone, or spike-like light covers that are used to adjust the light levels. These covers are locked in place by two handforged silver pins.
- Featuring polished copper, and stained walnut with a polished beeswax finish.
- A subtle on/off toggle switch is located on the lamp stem for easy activation.
- The walnut base is made from high end furniture offcuts.
- Small leather feet on the underside of the lamp base are factory scraps from luxury car manufacturers.
- The copper is almost always old salvage from around my own workshop or seconds from the local plumbing supply yard.
- The lamp runs of Extra Low Voltage 12V plug-pack highlighted with a decorative fabric sheath covering power lead. This enhancement created from reclaimed climbing ropes to give a powerful vintage appearance.
