Growing up in Ireland, Simon Pearce learned to throw pots in his father's studio. At 16, he went to London to study glassblowing, then traveled Europe apprenticing with prestigious makers, including Vennini in Italy and Boda and Orrefors in Sweden. Since 1981, he has created both lead-free glass and stoneware from his studio in Vermont, powered by a river that runs beside it.
Simple yet striking, this handblown glass lamp is a tall, elegant addition to any room. Handfinished details ensure each lamp is one-of-a-kind. Includes glass base and an 11 1/2" linen empire shade.
