Hanging from braided textile cables, the quality of the porcelain provides a white glossy appearance when the light is off while its translucence gives a soft warm glow when illuminated.

Here's some more information from SCP about the Josiah pendant light:

In 2008 Terence Woodgate created a forward thinking design, notable for its simplicity, elegance and grace. Josiah is made in Stoke-on-Trent, the spiritual home of English fine bone china, famous for its whiteness and translucent quality. The Josiah lights are as versatile as they are beautiful; they can be fitted with the latest innovative light sources, making them suitable for both commercial and residential environments. The light is available in small, medium and large and is suspended by a braided textile cable available in white, red or grey. When unlit the shades have a high gloss super white presence and when lit they provide a soft warm glow. Designed in Hackney, made in Stoke-on-Trent.
