Welcoming Tique Lights, The Newest Member of TruIrish

  These fantasic lamps are design and hand carved by Tracy Hoole. The idea for Tique Lights came from having seen similar products being made in the 1980s in Zimbabwe.   The lamps are made using 2 pvc tubes, with designs traced then hand cut, are placed inside each other, and when lit, produce a silhouette, ambience light.   The pipes are mounted in a wooden base, with electrical components and labels then added.   If you are interested in purchasing one, check out Tique Lights on Tru Irish now.   Shop Tique Lights now!
