Glow Up & Wind Down
Say goodnight (and good morning) with the perfect bedside companion.
A warm glow diffuses through the smallest of our lighting pieces with a single cone of frosted glass—hand cut with traditional patterns inspired by local Swiss ceramics. The glass rests upon an anodized aluminum frame.
Whether the light’s on or off, each cut glass pattern glistens.

Whether the light’s on or off, each cut glass pattern glistens.
Each cut pattern is derived from the unique markings found on Rösti bowls, plates and other utilitarian ceramics produced by Jakob and Ulrich Johann Seitz in the late 1800s. These two were amongst seventeen potters within Berneck and the first of six generations of Seitz craftsmen.

Bernecker Bauernkeramik
The potters of Berneck made their mark across Switzerland and northern Europe as pioneers
in peasant ceramics.
Each potter applied unique patterns to bowls, plates and terrines with
a Malhörnchen (cow horn). This was a common ancient technique used
on all earthenware across the ceramic regions in Europe.

The producers, mostly family businesses, used traditional techniques to create both small batches and unique pieces. For a long time, pottery was practiced on small farms to produce goods for own use, and this led to the term "Bauernkeramik", meaning farmer or peasant-style ceramics.

Later, the demand for peasant-style ceramics soared with tourism in the nineteenth century. In the trade's heyday, around the turn of the twentieth century, many manufacturers even presented their decorative ceramics at fairs in Paris and London.
