You are looking at a one of a kind rustic lamp made from spalded maple and cholla cactus. The trees were grown in East Tennessee and the cactus comes directly from the great Southwest. This lamp measures approximately 8-10 inches tall by 8-10 inches wide. The lamp includes a 4 watt night light bulb and a 6 foot regular household cord with on/off switch. No live plants were harvested to make these products.

I have seen mushrooms turned on a lathe from rounds…but this one is exquisite…I love the cactus rib for a stem..(it looks like saguaro)....and the beautiful grain in the cap…..very nice….
