All solid wood lamp & shade.
The lamp base features a segment turned body of black cherry with maple burl and wenge accents turned in a bead shape. Eight maple burl and wenge onlays become medallions when turned. A turned waist leads to an octagonal base on 8 turned feet, all in cherry. The neck is also a segment turned section, which is then carved to undulating flattened sides.
The shade is a conical form of joined solid cherry. The translucent panels are a stabilized birds eye maple veneer. Applying a penetrating epoxy and fiberglass cloth give the veneer exceptional strength, durability and stability. The effect is a rich translucent glow.
