The sails of this table lamp conjure up images of Sydney… The Opera House, the yachts, the sea birds…
Hand carved solid American Black Walnut and laminated Shoji Waterfall paper with a hand rubbed oil finish. 32” Tall
The concept for what has become The Sydney Lamp appeared in my sketchbook about eight years ago. It began as a bit of a free form exercise and I was not setting out to design a lamp specifically. Fairly early on though, I decided that what was taking shape in my sketch book was a lamp and I went so far as to write ‘shoji’ next to one of the sketches…
I finished this piece at the end of last year, but only wrote about it on my Blog last month.
