Art Wall Lights is a collection of hand made and beautifully finished sculptural and architectural wall lights. They are designed by sculptor and lamp maker Hannah Woodhouse.
Colours are muted, earthy and elegant. We use locally sourced and natural materials where possible. The launch range includes wall lights made in plaster, aged leather, rusted steel and bleached French oak. Lampshades are made by hand out of eucalyptus bark paper, silk and glazed linen.
To achieve the patina and “aged look” I use some unusual ingredients such as locally harvested grey Atlantic sea salt for rusting the steel, squid ink and walnut stain. Leather lights are covered and stitched by a local saddlery before I transform them to look aged and timeless. Steel lights are encased in a crust of sea salt which three weeks later is burnt off with a blow torch to reveal a rich patina of rust spots. Weeks later we have beautiful rusty lights! This launch collection is all about finish, surface texture and patina.
Art Wall Lights is a small family run business. My husband William Denniston and I make and finish each light with the help of a small team of local metal smiths, leatherworkers and art founders. We are passionate about attention to detail and quality of finish.
New designs will be added in the months ahead so please come back and visit the site regularly. We hope you like the collection and would very much appreciate your feedback. Your comments are important to us.

HANNAH WOODHOUSE says....
I am a lamp maker and sculptor. I have been making limited edition bronze lights & sculptural shades for over 20 years. I work with leading interior designers and private clients all over the world.
Until now my work has sold exclusively through interior designers and decorative arts shows held at Sotheby’s London and New York galleries.
My husband William Denniston and I set up a workshop in SW France 7 years ago. We discovered the wild atlantic coast, exciting new materials and a most precious local resource - highly skilled local french artisans. So we started to work together on a new range.
Art Wall Lights is a collection of hand made & beautifully finished sculptural and architectural wall lights. Signed by the artist but without the hefty price tag of a limited edition bronze.
Art Wall Lights is a small family run business. William and I make and finish each light with the help of a small team of local metal smiths, leatherworkers and art founders. We pay obsessive attention to detail and quality of finish.

To achieve the patina and “aged look” I use weird and wonderful ingredients such as locally harvested grey atlantic sea salt (for rusting), squid ink and walnut stain.
