DAY 3 – Steps 12-15
On the third and final day, the lampshade goes through quality control. Hanging marks created by the suspension of the lamps inside the oven are removed by hand with an abrasive stone. When the lamp is perfect in its own unique way, it receives the Coolicon badge, creating unique creases. The variations in the shape and colouring of each lamp reflect the practical nature of glass enamelling compared to decorative surface colouring, the purpose of which is to protect the lamp in extreme conditions. Coolicon lamps are unphased by water, steam, and rust, thanks to their solid glass enamelling. Likewise the lamps don’t fade in direct sunlight but rather reflect a better light than a regular coat of paint would. Last, but not least, the homogeneous and reliable glass surface is hard to scratch and built to last a long time.
