Lotte Art Pottery Lamps
The company was founded by Gunnar and Lotte Bostlund, a husband-and-wife team from Denmark who both trained in design. Gunnar as a ceramic engineer and Lotte in fine arts. The couple immigrated to Ontario in the post-WWII years and began producing all kinds of ceramic objects from their home near Toronto.  The first Lotte lamps were produced in 1956. Designs produced over the years range from simple glazed shapes to those hand-carved and intricately painted by Lotte herself.

We carry vintage and new Lotte lamps. The new lamps are made with the original master molds and materials-stoneware bases, spun yarn fibreglass shades. Contact us for pricing and available styles.

Limited Edition Leonia Luminaire

2S0A0070-low res

The name “Leonia” was inspired by one of the
Invisible Cities from Italo Calvino’s celebrated
eponymous novel. Leonia’s inspiration comes from
the desire to give disposable beer kegs a second life
as luminaires for a microbrewery.

“Leonia” is an ode (and a warning) to habitat destruction,
climate change, and the destruction caused by economic
pressure and greed. It’s a call for change, for mutualistic
interactions that results in respect for the earth and each other.

Pendant lighting design by SUMO Project.
