Lighting with character: May pendant from Original BTC

British lighting manufacturer Original BTC has launched the May pendant. 

The pendant’s white shades are painted at the top and bottom only, in order to introduce small pops of color without impacting the quality of light emitted. Hand-cast at Original BTC’s Stoke-on-Trent bone china factory in the UK, the May pendant is hand-painted in-house with clean, straight lines of varying widths. Concentrating color at the top and bottom maintains the material’s purity when switched on and brings character and definition when off.

Options include orange matched with grey and black or shades of blue and navy to bright cobalt, complete with corresponding painted ceiling roses and grey cotton braided flex. The May pendant is offered in two sizes of cylindrical bone china shades; a slim shade and a shorter, wider version to showcase the May pendant’s hand-painted lines.
