Why Lighting Made in the UK?

We think it is important to support British Manufacturers, these UK made lights are crafted by hand here, by J D Burford. They have a distinctive quality powder coated finish. This is often called enamel, however powder coating is a heat process that produces a better finish. J D Burford’s are a premier metal spinning factory based in the Welsh Valleys, producing among many other things, high quality crafted lights. This family business has been delivering quality products for over 40 years and they have supplied many of our customers for the past ten years.

How are Fisherman’s Lights Made?

The lights are made by hand which does take time. We estimate 12 – 15 working days to complete each batch, however the factory work hard to get your lights out as soon as possible as we know you’re waiting for them. We strive to produce a stylish item that represents a quality product, as opposed to a cheaper lightweight import. Getting replacement parts, such as glass covers, can be difficult with imported lights.

All our fisherman’s pendant & wall lights are handmade, not mass produced. The body and associated parts are all hand turned from aluminium. Any necessary drilling and forming is done at this stage. The lights are then assembled, cleaned and then go to the paint process. The simple explanation (but it is a bit more involved!) is the fisherman’s light is sprayed with a special powder paint. It’s then baked in an oven which ‘melts’ the powder giving an even finish; the process can take several hours.

Given the size and expense of these ovens and spray booths, only one colour can be used at a time. This takes time to clean before a change of colour, so it is reasonable for the factory to organise same colour batches together. This can delay the process by a few days depending on what batches are going through the factory at any time.

Once painted, the lights are then go to the electric fitting shop. They are wired by hand, assembled, and then go for final testing. Each light has an initialled proof they have been electrically tested before leaving the factory. The finished fisherman’s lamp is then wrapped, packed and sent to us.

Your patience will be rewarded: whether your fisherman’s lights are for the ceiling in the kitchen or outdoors to light outside your home, they will be stunning and unique.
