The drum pendent is a recreation of classic design in simplicity, with a basic round shape and soft diffuser. This places the cocoa leafs, carefully laid in pattern, to become the unique story behind this piece.
The frame is constructed of wrought iron, making the lamp very strong and durable; it’s powder coated in order to ensure the longevity of its color. Fossilization is the process of drying leaves over a three to four month period and then hand rubbing the chlorophyll of the leaf so only the leaf’s skeleton remains. Once the chlorophyll is removed, the leaf is stained in organic dyes. Since the leaves are natural, each one will absorb dye differently. The resulting effect is a lamp with different hues and shades (sometimes within the same leaf). once the leaf is stained, it is adhered to a heat resistant backing. The artists cut each leaf to ensure that no leaf will overlap. Finally, we use a strong sealant to ensure the stability and integrity of the shade.
