This is my most recent lamp, made from the root burl and lower stem of a mountain laurel bush found near my cabin. I call it “Dragon” because I think it looks kind of like a dragon or lizard. Finish is clear shellac.

Can’t help but wonder how you installed the wire?

Looking at the photo it looks like it’s been sawed in half.

I like it It gives me ideas. I would saw in half with scroll saw then grove out. Dont know how you did it though. A lot of drift wood out there to make lamps out of.
