LIGHTING

Tumbled Glass

Here is recycling at its best: the local community collects glass bottles from surrounding lodges and villages for us, we then break the glass into pieces and tumble it in our homemade glass-tumbler. This newly smooth glass is further hand-wrapped in copper or steel wire and attached to in-house welded frames, creating distinctive chandeliers, pendants, wall lights and lampshades.

 

Each tumbled glass product can be made with a combination of white, aqua, green and brown glass. As each light is a unique piece, please let us know colour and size preference.

 

Our lights come without electrics and ceiling hooks. Chandeliers are delivered with either linked chain attachment or baobab string (let us know your preference).

Clay Beads

Our clay beads are made from the clay that the Likoma Islanders use to build their houses. We combine them with recycled glass beads from Ghana to create chandeliers that are striking examples of what you can do with local, natural, and recycled materials. Clay beads are available in white and black, with glass beads available in aqua, white, blue and green.

 

Please note that these pieces are heavy and shipping costs will most likely double the final quote

Grey Seeds

These seeds are also known as imfibinga seeds and have been used traditionally in Africa for various kinds of decorations. Our seeds come from the region of Nkhata Bay, just across the lake from Likoma Island. Grey seeds are strung together and supplemented by colourful Ghanaian recycled glass beads.

Copper

Hand-punched disks and strips from old copper geezers create eye-catching chandeliers and lights, providing our clients with conversation pieces with a story of sustainability. Our lights are all unique characters, and we often combine our copper pieces with copper-wrapped tumbled glass. No matter which exclusive design you choose,

it will be sure to draw attention.
