This chic chandelier is handmade from different colored mud clay beads. It is available in a combination of black, white or aqua blue colors. 

Our mud clay beads are made locally here on Likoma Island. We actually use the same clay that islanders use to build their homes. Each bead is individually rolled, heated traditionally and painted by hand.  

In this piece we tie the clay beads on a locally welded frame. We have a in-house welding team, so we can adjust frames according to your wishes. In that case contact us for a custom order.  

This chandelier provides a striking examples of what we can do with local and natural materials. 

Please note that our clay bead chandeliers are heavy and need to hang from a solid ceiling point. Ceiling hook and chain provided. 

For custom sizes or shapes, please contact info@katundu.com.

'I custom ordered 3 large cocoteeth chandeliers from Katundu. They are absolutely stunning and the center piece in my hall. They were great to deal with; efficient and quick to respond. I loved the photo's of the chandeliers being constructed in the Katundu workshop. I would definitely order from Katundu again as their products are totally unique and so beautiful.
