I rated this "excellent" because it's a beautiful lamp. But unfortunately it arrived without the bracket needed to attach the shade, and so it can't be used. Overstock was unable to provide the bracket so I had no choice to but to return the lamp. Apparently it was the last one in stock so I am still looking for the right lamp for my living room....
Made by hand of barro bruñido (burnished clay), this elegant lamp comes from Mexico's Garcia Ochoa Family. Diamond motifs in black and white emulate masterpieces of colonial pottery. Once glazed with natural oxides, the clay is burnished by hand with a smooth stone. A cylindrical lampshade covered with cotton crowns the lamp.
Story Behind the Art:
'Our work was born from the desire to create something different in clay. We set up our workshop with the idea of offering a dignified job to people with physical handicaps. At the same time, we want to rescue the traditional technique known as 'barro brunido,' or burnished clay. Once the ceramic piece is finished, the design is perfectly laid out, and we use colors derived from different earth oxides. To finish it, we burnish it, forcing the color into the piece. Our designs are derived from the Mexican baroque tradition as well as contemporary styles.'
