Dromod Spalted Beech Lamp
The Dromod is a nod to where it all began in an old thatched cottage with a warm open hearth. Handmade from salvaged and storm-fallen timber, the classic and simple design of the Dromod heroes the natural beauty in the wood. With vintage style fittings and a retro style LED bulb, the Dromod lamp is a timeless and beautiful addition to any home.
The Dromod table lamp comes in a variety of woods and storm-fallen Irish timbers ranging from spalted beech to salvaged oak beams. This particular lamp is made from spalted beech from a storm fallen old beech tree from Co. Wicklow, Ireland that came down in 2012. The distinctive pattern is due to fungal attacks on the tree, and any black lines occur when two separate spores meet.
All copperfish lamps are made by hand in our in Delgany, Co. Wicklow and each comes with a handwritten label describing its provenance. The bulbs are LED and have an expected lifespan of 30,000 hours/10 years approx.
- Full lamp stands 30 cms high approx.
- Base 13cms square approx. 3 core wired, earthed, 220-240 volt, E27 fitting.
- Plug is a black 3 pin UK/Ireland plug.
Eoin Shanley set up Copperfish in Delgany, Co. Wicklow in 2016. He began working with old and reclaimed wood under the tutelage of a former coach builder and master joiner during the restoration of a 200-year-old, thatched cottage in Leitrim. At the time, Eoin found it difficult to find lighting that he liked and started to make his own.
The approach and philosophy used in the restoration of the cottage has flowed through to Copperfish in the use of local and sustainable materials. Each lamp starts with beautiful Irish storm-fallen or salvaged timber, selected for its character and provenance. We combine that with natural materials like copper and rope and environmentally friendly LED retro style bulbs, to create unique and distinctive lighting.
