Chris Rumsey potter




Southwell, Nottinghamshire


I produce mostly electric lamps and some t-lights. These are not traditional lamps, but a pottery vessel with holes that contains a light fitting. The holes allow light to spill out and fall onto the surfaces around it. Depending on the position of the lamp effects how light ‘magically’ falls on walls and ceiling in the room.
