These quality Mediterranean light fixtures cast beautiful shadows from the intricate metal cut outs. This light fixture is offered in custom sizes.
Description of how this style of Mediterranean lighting is made:
Method of production:
Using a fine blade fretsaw tool, the master artisan starts by placing a paper pattern of a complex drawing onto a brass sheet. then carefully does the intricate cutting work following the curves of the pattern on paper. Brass is cut, sculpted and engraved with extreme finesse.
The fretsaw tool gives this style of Mediterranean lighting a high level of craftsmanship not found otherwise in the standard Moroccan lanterns. The high quality of these Mediterranean 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.
