Handmade Lamp

Here is a a lamp designed and handmade by me. The base is ceramic thrown on the wheel and the white satin glaze poured on to create the layers. The 'lid' of the base is birds eye maple which was routed to fit perfectly on top. I used a natural white cotton fabric for the lampshade which has been folded and pressed to create a simple sculptural motif. Sam has a 3D printer which enabled me to use the shape that I designed for the shade, he used my drawing and printed what I needed out of biodegradable plastic.
