With a beautifully solid stoneware base and an Ottoman style geometric pattern etched into the clay, our Kardal Stoneware Lamp has a wash of stunning yellow ochre glaze, which allows the stunning pattern to shine through. If this isn’t quite her style, have a look through our lamp collection to find the perfect fit.
