Bernard Rooke Studio Ceramic Pierced TOTEM Floor Lamp, England, 1970s

About

A monumental ceramic TOTEM floor lamp with pierced detail by Bernard Rooke, England, 1970s. An impressive sculptural piece, made up of cast ceramic elements in natural tones, including a large central section which is pierced and allows illumination from within. The piece is in very good original condition, and is signed to the side of the base as shown. Wiring & shipping: The lamp is made up of separate sections positioned on a central metal tube. In view of the size and nature of the piece we suggest it is dismantled for shipping and rewired at its destination in line with your local needs and regulations. The wiring is configured to light both the top and the centre, with the top bulb being operated separately by a switch on the lamp-holder, and the central bulb being accessed through a hole in the back of the section. The wire leaves the base on the side (currently right side). Dimensions (ceramic only): H 117 cm x W 39 cm at centre x D 24 cm at base. Bernard Rooke was born in 1938, and studied ceramics at Goldsmiths College in London. In 1960 he set up a workshop in Forest Hill sharing with another pottery artist, Alan Wallwork. Rooke made progressive sculptural work and early pieces were hand-fashioned using coils and blocks. His work is found in private collections as well as museums and galleries around the world, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
