What type of sand does one use?

As locally sourced as possible to reduce your carbon footprint and to reduce transport costs, so as to create the least disturbance to existing natural habitat.
You do not need plastering sand.....can be as dead as anything ....we save our good sand for plastering. Just do not use top soil or anything with organic matter as this will break down.

"E-WIRE" lights by Andy Horn

The Eco Design lighting range is made from local or recycled materials. Standing Floor Lamps, Desk Lamps, Pendant Lights and Chandeliers are available. The lamp stands are from locally moon phase harvested alien timber. Recycled car parts are used as bases. Various paper shades & low energy LED light bulbs provide good lighting and create a beautiful atmosphere.
