Let me try… The waterfall is the grain of the wood. It is a two sided box for a shade and it bounces light off the wall behind from the open sides. Am I close?

Falling Water is a house designed and built by Frank Lloyd Wright in PN. He designed not only the house, but many of the furnishings and accessories as well. I am not at all above stealing good design :)
The upper portion is a book matched walnut shade. There is a lightbulb behind it. I’m pleased you caught on the grain pattern…I thought the same thing about the pattern.

Is that the house that has a waterfall in the living that flows outside? I think I understand now.

Thanks for jogging my memory about the house. I saw this some time ago on a show about houses that he had built. The only reason I remembered it was that a house here in town was also featured in the show. But the symbolism of this one escapes me (I can plead guilty to being devoid of artistic ability).

Scott-
I think I must have mislead somehow… This is a copy of a bedside lamp Frank had in his house…that’s all… I saw it in one of the wood mags and decided to make it. I’m not always artsy-fartsy…somtimes I just make stuffF… :)
