Fishermans Pendant Lighting
UK Made Nautical Ceiling Lights
Fisherman's Pendants are a popular ceiling light that have glass bowl that covers the lamp holder and bulb giving good light projection, this gives these lights their nautical character. All are available in three sizes, Standard, Large or Extra Large, the right style of pendant light for you will depend on the intended location and how much light you need.
Our Fisherman's lights are available in a range colours including, Seaspray ( sort of Duck Egg, very popular), Raw Aluminium (silver) or polished if you want a Chrome look, Shingle Grey, (darker grey), Gloss Black or Satin Matt Black.
Our lights are finished to order for better quality and can be built with longer cable lengths if required, to accommodate installation in vaulted or higher ceilings. The standard length makes the overall height of the fitting is 100 cm from ceiling to bottom of the light bulb. We offer 200 cm drop if required or for even longer select the 2m. option and add a note in the checkout comment box and we will do the rest at no further charge.
Why Made in the UK
We think it is important to support British Manufacturers, crafted by hand, these lights are made in the UK. They have a distinctive quality powder coated finish. This is often called enamel, however powder coating is a heat process that produces a better finish.
Making these pendant lights by hand does take time. We estimate 12 - 15 working days to complete each batch, however the factory work hard to get your lights out as soon as possible as we know you're waiting for them. We strive to produce a stylish item that represents a quality product, as opposed to a cheaper lightweight import.
Why does making our fisherman style light fixtures take this time?
All our fisherman's pendant lights are handmade, not mass produced. The body and associated parts are all hand turned from aluminium. Any necessary drilling and forming is done at this stage. The lights are then assembled, cleaned and then go to the paint process. The simple explanation (but it is a bit more involved!) is the fisherman's light is sprayed with a special powder paint. It's then baked in an oven which 'melts' the powder giving an even finish; the process can take several hours.
Given the size and expense of these ovens and spray booths, only one colour can be used at a time. This takes time to clean before a change of colour, so it is reasonable for the factory to organise same colour batches together. This can delay the process by a few days depending on what batches are going through the factory at any time.
Once painted, the lights are then go to the electric fitting shop. They are wired by hand, assembled, and then go for final testing. Each light has an initialled proof they have been electrically tested before leaving the factory. The finished fisherman's pendant lamp is then wrapped, packed and sent to us.
Your patience will be rewarded: whether your fishermans lights are for the ceiling in the kitchen, lounge or hallway, they will be stunning and unique.
