Have you ever thought how your lovely vase would be even more beautiful if it was a lamp?
You may have thought that it cannot be possible as the ceramic would shatter if you tried to drill the holes required for a lamp?
Well we’re here to tell you (and courtesy of customer David Johnstone, show you) that it IS possible!
Vase with fitted lamp holder
The trick is
to use a circular diamond drill bit – and use it very slowly on the ceramic base in order to drill the flex and rod holes to avoid shattering the vase.
Although a potentially hazardous job, don’t be put off by sculptors, shops etc who categorically say it cannot be done. Because it can!
and here is the proof…
a big Thank You to David for sharing this valuable knowledge and for his superb photos using our stock to create his stunning ceramic vase lamp!
If you head to the Ceramic Table Lamp kit on this website you can choose from our various Lampholders, raisers, base plates and lamp flex in varying colours and sizes.
