Rustic clay, tall candlesticks painted by the artist Luke Piper in a fresh and crisp lime pattern.
The candlesticks are taken from an original mould made by Luke's grandfather, the Neo-Romantic artist John Piper, and fired in John Piper's original kiln.
They come from a unique range created by Luke, inspired by his travels and heritage.

These are wonderfully rustic candlesticks that are not only practical but real works of art, since they belong to and stem from the Piper dynasty.
We are huge fans of Luke's paintings and love his 'candlestixs' (as he calls them).
His skills as a painter are translated to a daily object of use which is what Lapaloosa is all about - functional works of art.
These are a wonderfully fresh design and would look good on a mantlepiece, table or windowsill.
Pottery candlesticks cast in an original John Piper kiln and to an original John Piper mould.
The cast from the original mould is fettled down and Luke paints on the raw clay with slip and wax resist.
After a biscuit firing in the kiln, a second layer of coloured oxides and stains is then applied and the candlestick is given a transparent glaze before the second and final firing.
Luke is part of the Piper painting dynasty and a talented painter in his own right.
He is the son of the artist Edward Piper and grandson of the Neo-Romantic painter John Piper. His mother Prue is a ceramicist.
He read Geography at Cambridge University and has used his extensive travels round the world to influence much of his work.
The candlesticks he paints are made by his mother from a mould originally created by his grandfather John and cast in a kiln that his grandfather had at his Fawley Bottom farmhouse in Buckinghamshire. So they are real Piper heirlooms.
