The style is inspired by the Taliesin Lamps of Frank Lloyd Wright, the wood is Black Walnut with some Cherry
used in the splines on the mitered corners. The shade is a waterproof type rice paper and rocks are just
some Vermont river stones. It was commissioned by a guest to the treehouse from Northampton, MA.

Very nice – -

I have been thinking about a Taliesin inspired lamp ever since visiting there a couple of years ago. This may inspire me to get more serious about it.
