This lamp is named “Repose” because the shape is somewhat evocative of a person reclining on a couch. Mountain laurel with a clear shellac finish; the laurel branch was found in the woods near the buyer’s cabin. She liked another lamp I had made for a benefit auction earlier in the year and asked if I had something similar as a gift for her mother’s birthday in a week. I didn’t, but fortunately I was able to find the piece and finish it before I saw her the following weekend.
A 60W max table lamp, approximately 31” high. The cord is completely hidden within the wood, exiting through a knothole near the base. Unfortunately, the damaged shade shown here was the only one available when these photos were taken.
