Solid blue and white ceiling lantern with dramatic diffusion of light from single 40 watt candelabra bulb suspended inside. Globe features an intriguing balance between rigid symmetrical geometry and irregular patterns of translucent shoji paper. The spherical shape (10.5 inch diameter) is made with 90 interlocking origami units of opaque blue paper, and all of light passes through white paper windows. Lantern is supported by sturdy nylon struts attached to power chord above suspended light socket. Star-shaped openings cut into lantern at the top and bottom allow for ample ventilation from heat of bulb. Lantern is ideal for dimmer switch varying intensity of light and dramatic changes in illumination (dimmer not included - available on request). Appealing shape and surface texture enhances room in daylight even when not lighted. Comes with 40 watt candelabra bulb and 15 foot white power chord.
Pictures cannot do justice to the quality of light and appearance of Golden Heart Illumination lanterns. The lanterns themselves are an interesting sculptural art form with infinite variety of color density and surface texture within each unit. When illuminated, the appearance changes dramatically with light intensity (adjusted by dimmer switch or varying bulb wattage), and with changing the ambient lighting where the lantern resides. The structure of the folded, woven and layered paper lantern is remarkably strong because of the intrinsic geodesic skeleton and durable translucent adhesive binding it into a sturdy cohesive unit. It can be bounced like a basketball with minimal damage and guaranteed to last for years. You will not be disappointed with this beautiful one-of-a-kind light sculpture.
