Using FLWright’s masonry technique, I made this table lamp.

The lamp is modelled after his table lamp

Each layer of simulated stone is applied with contact cement.

I am not really satisfied with the color.

This project has been on my mind for a while and I finally gave in.

Interesting. Sometimes you just have to flesh things out, as you’ve done here before deciding on if you like it, or if it can be redone a different way.

Other than the color, would you do this again, or do it differently next time?

I certainly think this is a good starting point and could go numerous directions from here.

I used the two panels to give the stones a base to adhere,
Next time, I will build up the stones without the two panels thus allowing
some light to peak through the cracks as well as be reflected to the back.

Still pondering the color scheme.

Thanks for your comments
