This is my twisted ivy lamp, the body is made from some very old ivy which was attached to an old dead oak tree, I love working with dead ivy it always creates amazing shapes as it twists and turns enveloping the tree it lives on. It has amazing Textures and colours, I only used clear varnish, it helps enhance the true colour of the wood. The lamp is wired with a fully Earthed British standard plug, with a rocker switch on the cable. There is an antique style bulb holder and bulb fitted. The bulb emits a warm soft glow. The ivy is secured to beautiful, unusual and rare chunk of gleditsia sia, a tree not native to this country, it is usually found in North America. It’s a very colourful wood and has really lovely patterns running through the grain, there is also a partial live edge ( I’ve left the bark on) on the back of the base. There are foam pads on the underneath to prevent any scratching. The lamp shade is a good quality one, with a cotton exterior and a reflective champagne interior The dimensions are 27cms wide 17cms deep 46cms high. Approx weight is 1.5 Kgs. There are some very fine hair line cracks in the base these occurred whilst the wood was drying and are nothing to worry about, the wood will swell and contract depending on its environment.
The ivy I spotted clinging to a very old dead oak tree, it was so twisted and gnarly I knew I could do something with it, I didn’t know at the time it would turn into a lamp! The base is made from a wood I’ve never seen before, gleditsia sia, not native to the uk but found in North America, my neighbour planted one about 40 years ago unfortunately it got to big and the roots started to damage the driveway so it had to come down and the roots dug up. It was going to be burnt, so I saved it (with permission!) I am so glad I did, I’ve managed to make lots of great things with it most of which will be appearing in my shop very soon! Just got to list them.
