About this product
"The colours and meaning that were used to create Wendy were Red for devious, green for happy all the time, brown for fierce and white describing purity."
This Kapu Minaral (Beautiful Colours) Pendant Lampshade – was produced in a vibrant collaboration with Moa Arts, a Torres Strait Islander-owned art centre on Moa Island.
Moa Island is a unique region, a tropical paradise with turquoise waters and swaying palm trees. It is a flourishing cultural community with many talented artists among its 240 residents. The artists find inspiration right on their doorstep, as Moa Island and its surrounding waters boast diverse ecosystems, home to rare and remarkable species like Dugongs and Sea Turtles. These exquisite pendant lampshades are inspired by the sea, land, sky, family and ancestral tales, reflecting the colour and energy of the Torres Strait.
Each lampshade is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, often adorned with local seedpods, shells, native fibres, rope, and raffia, embodying the very essence of this land. Each lampshade is a unique expression of its artist who wove it.
Paula Savage, an esteemed artist and member of Moa Arts, beautifully encapsulates the sentiment: "This lampshade represents all hopes and dreams of my people. Each colour describes different generations after generations of Moa Island."
Crafted from local seedpods, shells, native fibres, rope, and raffia, each lampshade is handwoven and comes with a 2-metre black woven flex cable, black fitting, and ceiling rose. The E27 bulb-compatible lamp holder awaits your choice of bulb (not included).
All lights come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
