"the Hesterion: a wall sconce" - industrial grade resin, assorted electronics
This is the Hesterion Wall Sconce.
These are intended to be installed in multiples, surrounding a window or running down a hallway or library, for example. They do not need an existing electrical junction box, but rather simply surface mount to a wall with two screws. Power can be provided within either standard, inexpensive conduit or plastic plumbing hardware, or with a simple cord drop from a hole out the bottom of the fixture: some minor customization is expected on the part of the installer.
The knob at the bottom of the fixture is the rotary On/Off switch.
The master pattern was entirely handmade in cherry wood, then molds were made for casting. A build diary of the construction process can be perused on my Facebook page.
If you purchase the "Unfinished" variant, you will receive a cleaned casting ready for paint. The color variants will be in rich, dark hues and include a black glaze with an acrylic clearcoat: custom colors are available if requested. The "Patinaed Bronze" finish is what is illustrated in the photos, and is a six step finishing process utilizing metal powder infused paints and alkyd glazes.
The electrical components included in the package are two UL listed light sockets, a rotary on/off switch, and two 40 watt Edison light bulbs. All power connections and any conduit installation will need to be made by the installer.
