Attempts the balance between Art and Design; Form and Function.
One of many lamps I have created from the branches of my grandparents contorted filbert tree. The tree died after I left home for college. The forms of these deformed branches plays well with the fabric wrapped cords and cast a nice shadow. The shade is paper and is hand folded around an LED light.
The base of this particular lamp is a simple plank of white oak. It is ornamented with abstract drawings of plants benefiting from the light. The cord is fabric wrapped and pierces the drawing in a gesture to illustrate a cycle of energy.
