Wiring & shipping:
The lamp is made up of separate sections positioned on a central metal tube. The wiring is configured to light both the top and the centre, with the top bulb being operated separately by a switch on the lamp-holder, and the central bulb being accessed through a hole in the back of the section. We suggest it tested / rewired at its destination in line with your local needs and regulations. The wire leaves the base on the right side.
Dimensions (ceramic only): H 116cm x W 40cm at centre x D 23cm at base.
Bernard Rooke was born in 1938, and studied ceramics at Goldsmiths College in London. In 1960 he set up a workshop in Forest Hill sharing with another pottery artist, Alan Wallwork. Rooke made progressive sculptural work and early pieces were hand-fashioned using coils and blocks. His work is found in private collections as well as museums and galleries around the world, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
