Beautiful free formed “velvet” Mesquite wood, inlaid Turquoise and pierced Copper.
A small staff of craftsmen contribute to the making of the lamps and shades at W. Kohler. The business has grown throughout the years, but the uniqueness and quality of each lamp remains.
Lamp bases are free formed “Velvet” Mesquite harvested from the Sonora Desert, which is some of the most diverse and dense wood found anywhere on Earth. Each piece is handcrafted making it a one-of-a-kind heirloom.
Turquoise is inlaid in the naturally developed cracks of the wood. Each lamp is topped off with a shade hand crafted in 100% copper with a unique pierced design. The copper shade is finished with a hand applied patina and a clear lacquer finish to protect it.
The result is MAGICAL as the design is cast on to the wall when lit.
Nature’s finest elements are brought together in a brilliant display of craftsmanship and artistry.
These lamps are inlaid with brilliant turquoise, worked into mesquite wood burls; two materials emblematic of the American Southwest, where they are made. No two are the same, each reflecting the unique characteristics and personality of a single tree.
