Table lamp XV - String Structure by day 1 by Calabarte Table lamp XV - String Structure by day 1 by Calabarte

TABLE LAMP XV – STRING STRUCTURE
Lamp is made of senegalese calabash.
The pattern of the lamp is structure of symetric, crossing branching as from the perforated layer through three basic outer forms to the deeper light carvings.
White surfaces are deeper layer of wood which allows some light to pass through it. Although the thickness of gourd mostly don’t exceed 4mm (more is on the top and bottom) the carved patterns in that places create structure of three different depth. Each one shines with different intensity.
That carvings were definitely the most demanding part of work.
The supporting stem is finished with brown jeweller waxed string.
Also the part of the cable between base and switcher is weaved by thin string in the same type.
The base is carved in wood and finished with natural oil.
On the underneath side of the base is burned Calabarte logo with date (month and year) that lamp was finished in.
Diameters of the gourd are 20 and 22cm. Lamp is 45cm high.

The suggester said: "Although apparently simplistic in form, it has an organically balanced whole that belies the mastery required to make it. A lot of practice must have entered into this artisan's life before creating items like this. If you look at their gallery... it just gets more amazing!
