Copper Valve Lamp with exposed bulb
A simple yet very effective and functional lamp. The recycled red valve handle turns the lamp on and off.
It can be used as a table lamp but also screwed to any wall or ceiling. The clever design incorporates a dimmer switch which unlocks the true potential of the exposed bulb.
A clever reuse of and old steel floor flange and brass fitting. This beautiful valve lamp has been compressed together by hand into a very simple form using mostly reclaimed and recycled plumbing materials. The metal is hand polished to a natural finish that will age and develop character over time.
This lamp was designed around the exposed bulb and each design was developed to accentuate their beauty. This table lamp will not only lighten up your space with a delicate and ambient tone but will also add a quirky and artistic note.

All materials used are recycled or salvaged where possible. No lacquer or covering is used. The material is polished to a natural finish by hand and the products are designed to age over time.
Over time copper naturally changes colour. Transforming from a shiney brown/red colour to darker browns, then blues and finally greens after a number of years. When exposed to the natural elements copper develops this ‘patina’ which actually protects and preserves the metal underneath.
If you wish to clean the copper, we recommend some very fine wire wool or some P1000 or higher silicone carbide sandpaper both of which can be picked up from your local hardware shop. Please make sure the lamp is disconnected from the mains before cleaning. Please do not clean the copper effect lamp holder as its painted!
