Table lamp VIII
It’s my first lamp made of Senegalese calabash. Because of thickness of the fruit ( in some places it was over 1,5cm) carved parts are very deep. On the top of the lamp there’s closing part locked by magnets. The lamp was painted with wood oil in rosewood color. Black parts of the pattern are burnt calabash surface.
The base of the the lamp is carved from the block of alder wood and painted in the same color as lampshade . The stand is decorated with black jewellery waxed string.
Height of the lamp: 38cm (15”)
Calabash diameter: 26cm (10,2”)
Base diameter: 22cm (8,7″)
