A ceramic wall sconce embodies contemporary design. Clean lines, form and function harmonized, and all in the shape of modern wall sconces that are true pieces of ceramic artwork. Indeed, the modern and contemporary sconces featured below are a one-of-a-kind collection ? imagined by the ceramic artisans at Fabby, and brought to you online by Hooks and Lattice.
Contemporary sconces illuminate corridors and staircases, make a functional light above bedside tables, or simply add an interesting ceramic wall sconce accent. Each of the fixtures found in this collection is derived from white earthenware clay that is slip-cast and then bisque fired to its pleasing milky white finish. While most customers actually prefer the natural ceramic wall sconce color, others like to paint using latex or acrylic-based paints. However you choose to display them, contemporary and modern wall sconces that are made in the tradition of clay art are naturally beautiful.

Accentuate your modern or contemporary design aesthetic with the addition of ceramic wall sconce fixtures by Fabby, a product handcrafted from white earthenware clay. This truly unique collection of bisque fired contemporary sconces encompasses a range of engaging shapes, sizes and designs, with each fixture embodying a naturally chic appeal.
The contemporary and modern wall sconces by Fabby range from funky asymmetrical choices to modified geometrics with clean lines. Each ceramic wall sconce has one thing in common though, they complement design-centric decor. The natural creamy color created by the bisque firing process makes contemporary sconces effortlessly beautiful in their natural white, but modification is possible with latex or acrylic paints for bolder color palettes.
A ceramic wall sconce in any design is truly an interesting way to incorporate wall fixtures into your overall lighting design. While many factory-made modern wall sconces are constructed out of metal materials, these lights draw on a timelessly loved art form ? clay molding and kiln firing. Each ceramic wall sconce begins as a hunk of earthenware clay that is prepped, slip-casted, fired and then sanded for refinement. This process makes each fixture, although fully functioning contemporary sconces, into a one-of-a-kind work of art. Slight imperfections in the material make for an interesting level of original detail.
Contemporary and modern wall sconces are not only appealing to those with an eye for current and leading-edge design trends. These fixtures also have a timeless feeling in part to the material construction. For example, where the Tall Cylinder Contemporary Sconce will look sleek and clean in a modern home, it can also look like a refined lighting choice in the corridor of a classic home that features white crown molding and wood carved built-ins. The ability to paint these fixtures pushes their versatility of application even farther.
Some of the contemporary sconces featured above have an uplight and downlight, with others only featuring uplight openings. Others still have cutouts and patterns in the face of the fixture that spills more light out in various directions, creating a uniquely lovely effect. Standard configuration is for interior use, although some fixtures may be wired for damp exterior applications.
