Galileo first used a pendulum in the early 1600s to explore timekeeping. As if time stood still, the pendulum shade hoovers suspended over its bulb on a metal chain. The chain is attached to a sturdy metal arm, geometrically shaped to run parallel along the side of the shade. The artisan crafted together solid wood and metal to work seamlessly. The material combination continues a tradition of timeless pieces, similar to the clocks Galileo invented.
Features fossilized cocoa leaves that are hand placed on a standard UL lamp backing, laminated and formed into a traditional wide-based lampshade shape using a non-toxic adhesive. The metal is finished with an antique copper powder coat finish. The metal work is set on a solid mango wood base, sustainably sourced from mango farms.
