- Sunshine Dip Lamp
This Sunshine Dip Lamp by Camilla Westergaard is utterly unique. Each one is hand-made and therefore one of a kind.
The lamp is slip-cast in creamy porcelain from Stoke-on-Trent using a hand-made mould. It is then fired in a gas kiln, and after the first biscuit (lower temperature) firing, Camilla works on each one individually, smoothing and finishing, before high-firing them at over 1200°C. It is left unglazed to show the quality and natural colour of the porcelain.
Once cooled, it is then partially dipped in liquid rubber which gives a solid opaque colour which is difficult to get with a normal ceramic glaze. The contrast in textures you achieved with this technique is interesting and unusual: slightly squishy soft rubber on top of the hard, almost rough, natural porcelain.
Camilla's mid-century, retro-inspired lampshade pattern is printed by hand in bright - almost fluoro colours - which give it a fresh, contemporary twist.
Camilla Westergaard set up her company Butterscotch & Beestings in 2011. She loves drawing, colour, patterns and storytelling - and is smitten by the adventures of the circus, themes of which echo in a lot of her work.
What Cat says
This little Sunshine Dip Lamp is one stunning piece! I love how Camilla has paired a retro design with contemporary fluoro's and bright colours. It is a great updating of a classic style. Perfect for a side table or anywhere you want to attract some attention!
