This handsome ceiling light is part of our Modern Moroccan lighting – a new home decor collection of upscale contemporary light fixtures handmade in Morocco. Custom sizes are available.
Using a fine blade fretsaw tool, the master artisan starts by placing a paper pattern of a complex drawing onto a brass sheet. The artisan then followins the curves of the pattern on paper with a fretsaw cutting each opening with care. Brass is cut, sculpted and engraved with extreme finesse.
The fretsaw tool, called “serrouj” in Morocco, gives this style of Moroccan lighting a high level of craftsmanship not found otherwise in the standard Moroccan lanterns. The high quality of these Moroccan lamps is enhanced by hand-engraving over the brass metal giving them added texture and beauty. An art of brassware that is still practiced among fine craftsmen in Morocco.
This lamp comes with one foot of chain and matching canopy/ceiling plate.
