This lamp, ‘Going for Gold’, is my tribute to Katarina Johnson-Thompson, Britain’s incredible, tenacious athlete and former World Heptathlon Champion, as well as to anyone who has persevered through adversity to achieve their goal—no matter how small or large that goal may seem.

Throughout Katarina Johnson-Thompson’s career she has suffered more than her fair share of adversity, with injuries and major championships heartbreak, but it all came right in Doha, Qatar to spectacular effect on 4th October 2019 when she won the world heptathlon title.

The lamp is constructed from painted, British-made iron and brass pipe fittings. It has an integrated touch-sensor switch which gives three levels of brightness when anywhere on the metal body of the lamp, or hurdle, is touched.

An engraved brass plaque (100mm x 20mm) is also available to add personalisation to the lamp for a small extra cost.

The 3-core electrical cable is encased in a hard-wearing, braided, polyester sleeve and is fitted with a 3 amp, UK plug. The lamp comes with a FREE 40W, retro Edison filament bulb.

    An iconic piece whose robust metallic contours embrace a loving and intimate moment. A most beautiful work of art, meticulously designed and finished with absolute precision. The heart shaped light is exquisite.

    Brought our first lamp at a handmade show in Milton Keynes which was fabulous and was so nice to hear the way they are made. Then brought the fisherman online as a present and it came on time as expected, we was kept updated on its progress and was well packaged. Highly recommend!
