PINE BURL LAMP WITH HAND CUT SHADE
I've been a little slow adding to the blog lately. Fortunately we've been extremely busy, but I am still finding time to get some more lamps together. This is a candid shot of a one of a kind. The base is riddled with bug paths that were found under the bark. The trick was to keep as many as possible while cleaning the burl. The shade size is more in keeping with the style popular in the 1920s and 30s. Hand cut from oak with bark paper diffuser the patterns go from the Rockies to the Southwest. This lamp or a similar one is available.
