Snowdrop Lamp

This lamp is inspired by the Snowdrop flowers that pop up in my back yard in the early spring.
The stem and blossom frame are made of Sapele (the darker wood) and the shades are Maple(the lighter color). I use pegged toung and groove joinery to hold the curves of the frame together.
The thin shades are the highlight of my lamps. This shade is a very thin slice of Maple that with the lamp off contrasts beautifully with the frame and with the lamp on you see the rosy pink glow and the unusual transparency that will draw you in for a closer look.
My lamps have a satin polyurethane finish that protects the wood and makes them easy to clean. All electrical components are "U.L." tested. This lamp measures about 15 x 9 inches wide and 22 inches tall. My pieces are completely handmade by me in my shop here in Greenfield Mass.
I love custom orders. If you like one of my pieces but think a different wood type or size would be better for your living room, contact me. I'll be happy to help.
