Reproduction Edison bulb table lamps handcrafted from all-Australian recycled timber. Styling features include vintage metal, coloured Ball Mason jar pendants and metal bulb cages for a contemporary industrial look. Delivery around Australia.
Bruce Keogh uses the colour, texture and character of found materials to inspire his designs. Where he can, he shares the background of recycled ingredients. One very popular farm relic is the metal ‘hame’ from load-pulling, draft horse harnessing. Collectible original or 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 black and copper-tone metal bulb cages.
Before starting Crafty Fox, Bruce owned a nursery 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.
