Here is an Arts & Crafts lamp I made from scraps leftover from another project. Used amber mica for the shade. The compound angles made this the most difficult piece I have ever made.

That looks tricky, great job. Where do you get the amber mica?

very nice work do you have plans for this or it’s just something you made for from you head?

I would also like to know where you purched the mica. Great job.
When I couldn’t find a source for mica, I gave up and purchased a metal and oak lamp.
Thanks

Nice lamp, I’m a fan of arts & crafts. I like the attention to detail using 1/4 sawn white oak grain on all exposed surfaces.

That is the most beautiful lamp. Makes me wish I used table lamps. Love that mica! Could one use stained glass instead?

BigIke: I don’t have any plans. I made it up as I went along. I had a picture from the internet for inspiration.

Pintodeluxe et al: I got the mica from Woodworkers Supply over the internet.

Vicki: I think you could use stained glass. Be careful of the extra weight for the shade supports.

Thanks all for your comments.
