The Beer Pot takes it’s inspiration from the traditional handcrafted beer pot in which Zulu women brewed their ‘umqoumbothi’ beer. This piece is a modern twist on the Zulu beer pot, hand thrown on the wheel and then decorated with the sgraffito technique of cutting into the clay to create a pattern on the pot before it’s final glaze.
Height to top of lamp base 33cm. Width of lamp base at widest point 33cm. Total height of both lamp and shade 65cm (dimensions are approximate as these are hand thrown pieces)
Shown here with cylinder drum laminated shade in Veld green 30cm H X 40cm D. Flex in Charcoal.
The table lamp is hand thrown on a wheel, no two pieces will be exactly the same, if you wish to order a pair, we will ensure they are identical.
Customisation Possibilities It is possible to have this sgraffito design with the green/umber glaze.
This is a handmade product with hand mixed glazes, small irregularities are expected and part of the character of the piece.
