Lyngard was co-founded by Carmen Lyngard and Iain Pattinson in 2014. Carmen’s ceramic making ancestors passed on their knowledge to her through 6 generations of ceramic artists and potters, dating back to 18299. All their ceiling pendant lights and accessories are made from a superior Fine Bone China, to give the body extra strength and durability. Today Lyngard draw their inspiration from the past, using decorative techniques that are unique to them. Carmen designs and hand sculpts the prototype, then the pair manufacture the pieces in Stoke-on-Trent from start to finish.
One of the specialist techniques they use, is known by only a handful of experts worldwide ; true reduction fired lustres. This effect produces a shimmering iridescent glaze, the colour of which can change appearance depending on the light emitted in the room. Metallic elements are added to the firing process to give the light its individual charm. No two pieces are the exactly the same, which adds to the designs unique beauty and universal appeal. Other timeless finishes are the hand painted marble effects, and coloured bodies with 24 carat gold, platinum or copper interiors.
