I introduced you to Dominic Bromley and his stunning lamps for Scabetti way back in 2007. Since then, his beautiful Shoal light made of fine bone china fish that seem to be suspended as swimming in a school (hence the name) has expanded into a line that includes various sizes, custom versions and even special new editions such as glass and gold.
Fine Bone China Shoal lights:
A mass of fine bone china fish carrying delicate sculpted detail, circle a central beam of light, creating a captivating cylindrical form. Each fish is lit not only by reflected light from its neighbours but also from within, with the light passing through the delicate translucent china body.
