St Ives Table Lamp
The highly individual design of the St Ives table lamp has been influenced by the celebrated British abstract painter Ben Nicholson (1894-1982).
In the 1920’s Nicholson began painting figurative and abstract works inspired by Post Impressionism and Cubism.

Each lamp is individually handmade from a selection of oak, slate, acrylic, resin, and aluminium pieces each with a unique arrangement by the maker David Raine.
David’s love affair with the coast and sea developed from early childhood. With salt in his blood it’s a theme that courses through much of his work.
Living in Cornwall nothing can be as outrageous as an Atlantic storm pounding the shore and it’s this sort of inspiration with which he works.
“I like to hold things, stones, shells, letting different types of sand flow through my fingers, coarse, fine, damp, to get annoyed but enlivened as the wind and rain drives into my face”.
Elements flow together playing with expectations as he attempts to create the very essence of our coastline in each of his products for the home.
Sold complete with shade.
Handmade in Cornwall and individually signed by the artist.
