This pair of Industrial side tables are made of Aladdin Blue Flame Paraffin heaters from the studio of the Socialist Sculptor, Ian Homer Walters (1930-2006), best known for his London statues of Nelson Mandela on the South Bank and in Parliament Square. Having served to heat his studio, they have now been disabled as lamps so that they are interesting sculptural items in their own right - Architectural Ironmongery with theÂ rust of ages and a whole new practical purpose.
We have given them circular opaque glass tops in a similar pale industrial greenish shade, mounted on strong suction cups with brackets and screws for safety, and ease of cleaning/moving. As a pair of Urban edgy glass side tables, they bring theirÂ interesting past life and associations with them into any Industrial scene; Loft, Studio orÂ Warehouse. Or they could add highlightsÂ of the rawÂ Industrial look toÂ a more conventionalÂ design setting. Wherever they go they are sure to be unique conversation pieces..
