These Taliesin Desk Lamps are made out of Black Walnut and Cottonwood.
They are 23” at the top, the base is 10” square, the shade 14” square.
The shade material is a waterproof rice paper. Frank Lloyd Wright designed
one in 1925 for his home in Wisconsin named Taliesin.

I love this style lamp. Made one myself a few years ago. It was very prone to tipping forward. Most
people put rocks in the base to make it more stable. Or is that just the FLW falling water motif. Has any one tried this style with some kind of hidden weight to make it more stable? Never the less I think that it looks great. I like the contrasting splines

Nice job on the lamp. I have been going crazy looking for a place that sells waterproof rice paper for a set of room dividers I built about 6 months ago. Where did you find it?
