Orb Table Lamp

Orb Table Lamp

The Orb table lamp is comprised of a series of ‘Josephine’ knots (macrame) also known as the Carrick Bend (nautical). This knot is part of the basket weave family and is known for it’s strength and symmetry. The name ‘Orb’ refers to symbols of monarchy, as well as the phenomenon of circular light balls.

Here, Aimee has applied the Josephine knot to a spherical lamp base to create an object which nods to fishnet bottles. The leather cord and hand painted surface gives a fresh contemporary look, which takes it away from it’s nautical origins. The shade has been decorated with a sashiko style running stitch, created using a hand guided pleating machine.

The Orb Table Lamp is exclusive to The New Craftsmen. For enquiries & commissions please contact Kate via The New Craftsmen website.
