Colin Chetwood in his own words:

"Living in the Wye valley, an area lush with plant life and with sharply changing landscape, my work is inspired by natural elements. The river often floods covering the trees with flotsam; the sky above the Black Mountains changes from day to day sending clouds and winds scudding towards my home. The energy of this landscape permeates my work.”




After studying sculpture at the Slade School of Art in the early eighties, Colin set up a studio in London producing forged steel furniture and gates. His work sold to clients both in the UK and abroad and was featured in many national magazines due to the nature of its uniqueness.

Needing to find new horizons in the mid 1990's he spent some time travelling, working for firms and making sculpture for noted artists. It was during his time in Germany that he became interested in combining the warm qualities of copper with the subtle colours of paper, one of the world's oldest materials, to create lamps inspired by natural forms.

Colin's range of lighting includes wall lights, desk lamps, standing lamps with bases, lampshades and sculptural lighting.

Our display shows a selection of contemporary lights inspired by plant forms. All the lamps are handmade, and often with tissue shades which project a subtle atmosphere into the room. The bases are of beaten or burnished copper or aluminium.
