Makers: Copperfish Lighting
From quiet country churches, silent docks and forgotten railway sleepers, Copperfish’s lighting begins with the unique textures of their salvaged wood. Coupling this storied wood with industrial materials and elegant retro bulbs they craft lighting collections for modern homes and spaces.
Each lamp is unique, the colour, grain and finish of the wood will vary from lamp to lamp. All Copperfish Lighting’s lamps are made by hand in their studio in Delgany, Co. Wicklow.
Eoin Shanley set up Copperfish Lighting in Delgany, Co. Wicklow in 2016. He began working with old and reclaimed wood under the tutelage of a former coach builder and master joiner during the renovation of a 200-year-old, thatched cottage in Leitrim. At the time, Eoin found it difficult to find lighting that he liked and started to make his own. He quickly started to get requests from friends and family and decided to set up Copperfish Lighting to make lamps fulltime.
