General Information

Glass and Copper.

In addition to several glass domes and lamp shades, Peter Bowles’ glass works in Worcestershire manufacturers flat glass for windows and historical buildings. They are using a time-honoured method: The glass is first blown into a cylinder shape which is cut off on the top and bottom, slit lengthwise and then reheated and flattened out to build the flat glass. Using cylindrical glass forms for lamp shades was a logical step, and Bowles simply transferred it to the pendant luminaries. The copper domes for the lamps come from a metal working firm in Birmingham, which not surprisingly, also belongs to Bowles.

British, in Detail. Lamps from BTC.

Lamps made by BTC (= British Timeless Classics), in the vicinity of Oxford, have attained the status of timeless classics. The creative spirit and driving force behind the firm is Peter Bowles, who pursues his very clear idea and just as clearly realises his agenda. The process starts with the manufacture: Bowles wants to produce lamps that are British down to the level of detail. For example, the bone china-lamp shades come from a pottery in Stoke-on-Trent, known as the "the Potteries" because of the almost 500 potteries that used to be located there. Almost all are gone today and the firm, which also belongs to Bowles, would not exist except for BTC. He took it over when it was on the brink of bankruptcy and has restructured it while keeping all the employees. The hand-blown glass domes come from a glass blowing shop in Worcestershire which Bowles also bought. In addition to domes for lamps, the shop produces coloured glass windows for historical buildings and churches. A handful of glass blowers with their two small smelting furnaces practice the methods of glass blowing and uphold the once famous English tradition of this trade. The British manufacture of the lamps extends to the cables, too. Bowles was dissatisfied with the plastic wrapped cables on his first lamp, so he used a locally produced cloth wrapped cable from a clothes iron for his exhibition piece. The reaction was so positive that he has used cloth cable since. They are locally produced near the firm in home-based work.
