This is my second new design of 2011. Currently only available as a table lamp, I will likely make a floor lamp version at some point.

American Black Walnut, ‘White Silk’ Shoji Paper & Stainless Steel
32” Tall x 11” Diameter
75 Watt Bulb MAX (CFL recommended)

Thanks!! I do indeed sell these lamps , through several galleries as well as an Etsy store: .I worked primarily on furniture commissions for a while, but at this point I focus primarily on the lamps.

I actually don’t have any pics of it illuminated on hand—but I will post when I do.

that is amazing! Checked out your other stuff, very inspiring! From the prices it looks like I’m in the wrong line of work, I should focus on lamp making! You are very talented indeed.
