Here's some more information from Hubert:


Chimney is a collection of hand thrown, kiln fired clay pendant lamps.

They are produced in a pottery studio in Wales and utilise the natural clay of the region.

Using traditional hand thrown techniques each lamp has its own unique character with a textured exterior finish in contrast to a gloss white glazed interior.

Chimney Lights are designed by Benjamin Hubert Studio and manufactured by Viaduct.

The multi award winning Benjamin Hubert Studio was established in 2007 and works with a range of international design brands to develop products that have an inherent timeless quality and user benefit.

The studio works across furniture, lighting and product sectors with a functionally led, austere aesthetic.

Benjamin employs a material and process driven design approach and has explored various innovative material/production techniques.
