This is a wooden version of a Frank Lloyd Wright design done with metal. It is cherry with stained glass
and a globe from a common ceiling light fixture.

Looks elegant, stylist, and exceptionally exclusive….(what the heck I’m talking).
It’s just beautiful – excellent craftsman.

I like this fixture with the stained glass.

Did you play around with various globes, or just go with what you had/found? Wondering how that might change the appearance?

Question: How do you change the light bulb? It looks like the globe is securely in-place. Is there an access panel on the top, or can we not see that the globe comes off?

Did you just make one of these, or do you have a matching pair/set?

Nice job!

I really like the look of this. I could see something like that also as a porch light.

The structural elements of this piece are nicely balanced. The light panels on the top really give it a lighter feeling. I looked at your gallery and greatly admire your work and imagination. Of course, it also takes a bit of talent to transform those mental images into a physical piece. Your workmanship is excellent. Here’s a high five from me…......
