The timeless design of simple forms possess a sculptural trademark made popular by the late designer LaGardo Tackett. His unique sensibility to design became popular when he worked for Architectural Pottery,1950 -1970s. In true union of a cultural legacy, the Architectural Lamp Collection ensues that same design philosophy. Fine handmade luminaries with design intelligence. Our patent pending ceramic shades have a direct canopy design allowing light to reflect off walls & ceilings creating a soft room glow. The eave partition under each shade also admits soft light. Please note: studio white shades reflect 70% more light than the coal black shades. Vessel USA Inc. is the sole licensor of the Architectural Lamp Collection.
