B. Rooke Ceramic Floor Lamp with Custom Made New Silk Lampshade by René Houben



A rare, or oversize, ceramic TOTEM table lamp by Bernard Rooke, England, 1960s. Sculptural piece, made of handmade ceramic elements in natural tones of terracotta, aqua and stone, with a combination of dry and glazed finishes. The lamp is made up of separate sections, positioned on a central metal tube, with some elements being decorated with Rooke's own hieroglyphic-style symbols. With a special custom made silk lamp shade by René Houben. The lamp is in very good vintage condition, with occasional minor flaws in line with the making and firing process. For us, the weight and texture of the elements suggest this could be an early piece. The lamp is offered with shade, we offer more special shades from René Houben. Different colors and different forms. Approximate dimensions: Ceramic only height 28.7"(73 cm) x width 6"(15.2 cm) at base x depth 5.5" (14 cm) at base height to top of lamp-holder circa 43.3" (110 cm.) René Houben is a renowned Dutch light designer. René has been designing unique lamp shades for more than 25 years. From colorful and exuberant to modest. For every extraordinary lamp base (carefully selected antique and vintage items), he designs an applicable shade. His custom made creations are unique because of his interesting use of form and color. They also stand out because of their indirect, soothing and intimate light. Houben is well known and loved by interior designers and decorators all-over Europe. Bernard Rooke pottery is highly prized among collectors and interior designers. Bernard Rooke was born in 1938 and is an Iconic British Studio potter and Artist. Bernard Rooke’s ceramic art sums up Studio Pottery perfectly, it is unique, stunning to look at and each piece tells a little story.
