Reproduction Edison-style bulbs enhancing unusual and original table lamps handcrafted from all-Australian recycled timber. Styling features include vintage metal relics, coloured Ball Mason jar pendants and metal cages and domes for a contemporary industrial look. Delivery around Australia.
Bruce Keogh uses the colour, texture and character of materials to inspire his designs. One very popular farm relic is the metal ‘hame’ from load-pulling, draft horse harnessing. Reproduction vintage Ball Mason jars from the USA, with a century of renown, make for beautiful lamp pendants. Augmenting the industrial theme is the use of metal bulb cages with tones of copper, brass, silver and rust.
Before starting Crafty Fox, Bruce owned a nursery producing seedlings for native revegetation and farm forestry in Victoria. Timber was his first passion and he works with many species that he propagated in abundance.
Setting up a display at Peace of Green Gallery in Maleny was no accident. The region is revered for its art and craft galleries and renowned for wood artisanship. Appreciation of the beauty of Australian timber lives on from the 19th century, when hand-felled, bullock-drawn timber from the region played a vital role in early settlement. Crafty Fox lamps link past and present.
Crafty Fox is bringing an industrial flavour to Queensland lighting but delivery Australia-wide is easy and affordable.
