Mount light at 45 degree angle in skylight

I am looking for help and advice regarding how to mount a light at a 45 degree angle.

We have a skylight above our kitchen prep island and would like to mount a light up here to light our prep area.

Unfortunately, with white cabinets and white countertops, there's a lot of white already.

We've tried two LED solutions (Philips Lederno 2-light and 3 light directional spotlights) but found they did not dim sufficiently (even with uber expensive ELV dimmer as spec'd).

In proximity of the same area, we have the Varaluz Fascination light over our breakfast table (love it).

We have just received the Varaluz 2 light bathroom sconce and would like to mount it at a 45 degree angle, so that the lights do not shine directly into the eyes of the prep area staff. The fixture will be mounted approximately 6' above the island countertop.

Any suggestions on how to do this would be very much appreciate; DH is most handly.

Here's the light held up at the normal mounting angle (against different wall):

Here it is held at the desired 45 degree angle (though not at height at which it would be mounted):

And here is a closeup of the backside of the light - please ignore wine glass to the left, added only for help in determining scale :)

Looking for advice on how to mount the light at a 45% angle above the prep area. Any ideas, suggestions, recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks!
