I designed this fixture a few years ago to hang over one of my work spaces. I call her Alice. I think it perfectly expresses my aesthetic: minimal embellishment, attention to detail, and quality materials that will last a lifetime (no cheap finishes here).
About the fixture:
• I handcraft each fixture from solid brass in my Southern California studio. The brass is hand-polished and finished with a matte microcrystalline wax.
• Articulating head allows you to point the light exactly where you need it most. Swivel mechanism rotates 360 degrees and pivots 90 degrees
• Antique replica fabric twist cord completes the design, available in black, white, sand, or silver. See photo 10 for reference
• In-line rocker switch is located on the cord about 18" below the backplate
• Hard-wired option available for installation into a wall junction box. This option includes a universal crossbar and mounting hardware
250v max. Compatible with both US and European voltage systems. Ships with standard North American Plug
UL listed E26 porcelain socket. For use with LED bulb, or 60 watt max. incandescent. Photographed with a frosted G25 bulb, sold separately

As with life, be gentle. Don't use any harsh chemicals. If left untouched, brass will darken and develop a patina with age. If you feel the need to brighten your brass to it's original hue, you can use a gentle metal polish. I recommend a product called Brasso, which can be found at your local hardware store.

YES! Absolutely. Common customizations include changing the cord color, the switch mechanism, or dimensions. Please shoot me a message with any customization requests prior to placing your order.
Well, okay! My fixtures are made from solid brass that is not lacquered. The brass is polished by hand, and then covered in a thin layer of artisanal microcrystalline wax (Theres a $10 word for ya). This leaves the fixture with a deep, matte luster. The brass will darken and patina with age. I absolutely love the look of naturally aged brass, but if you prefer the bright gold you can clean it up with Brasso or Barkeepers Friend every six months or so.
