That is absolutely beautiful - I am so jealous..!  ;)

Was that a normal lampshade frame or something made specifically for hanging dangly fronds from.?

i am in awe. I love how you took nothing and made it into something beautiful.. and functional!
how much light does it let out? it looks like quite a lot.
when i first saw it, i thought it looked like butterfly cakes :P

thanks!

yeah. It lets out quite a lot of light. gives out a very warm and cozy shine..

I was going to join the challenge, but then I made another lamp and entered with that instead.

the frame is just some metal wire in two circles... I was going to use a bicyclewheel at first, but I didn't have the tools to deconstruct it right there and then (and I'm sure you all recognise that a good idea can't wait... for anything) :)

thanks again for your comments!

what did you cut the circles from?
It seems there are random words on it.
Awesome job!!!!!!!!


Title: Re: mobile lamp
Post by: violentlyknits on May 04, 2008 12:17:06 AM
thanks for all your wonderful comments!
the circles are from the pages of a book I tore apart to make into a notebook. It had a nice cover, but I haven't read the book itself... don't think it was any good :)

yeah! it would be cool to use a special text next time... maybe a cookbook if I make one for the kitchen...

That is really super. Do you have any trouble with the heat from the light bulb singing the paper?
