According to House of Troy, Bill Brown, president of House of Troy, said that the lamps made at G. Scatchard are not just your standard lamps, they are artwork.
“Scatchard gives us the opportunity to better serve our retailers by expanding our offering,” Brown said. “The colors created by the unique glazing process will appeal to the most discerning customers.”
G. Scatchard Lamps fabricates their lamps in various styles with very distinctive shapes and attractive colors, glazes and textures to choose from:
There are a lot more glazes to choose from with new colors and textures that come out monthly. Each shade is made of heavy domestic linen in a light cream color and can be chosen in wither a typical “regular” shade or a drum style shade.
All George Scatchard ceramic table lamps are handmade in Vermont in a rehabilitated horse barn and are all shaped on the potter’s when by George Scatchard himself. The lamps are trimmed and glazed by hand, applied with a brush as the lamp spins on a potter’s wheel (creating the inherent swirls found on the lamps base).
According to gslamps.com, “The glazes themselves are the result of a lifetime of experimentation and are unique in their variety and richness.”
