Project Information

This is a corner light or sconce I designed and built based on a Frank Lloyd Wright clerestory window. It is a Christmas present for my son who is in college. It will go in the corner of his bedroom above the nightstand.

The two sides which show are made of 1/2" oak and the two sides which go into the corner of the wall are 1/2" plywood. The openings are backed by a rice paper shade material. It is light by 2 - 60 watt equivalent compact fluorescent bulbs.

What are the opening covered with? Some kind of paper? Something that won't ignite if it gets really hot? I may try something similar but don't want a fire hazzard!

Thanks for all the comments.

The openings are covered with a lamp shade material - it is styrene lamp shade material with rice paper adhered to it. If you look at my projects I've built 3 other lamps using the same material. I used compact florescent bulbs and have had no signs of problems after months of use.

You can order the shade material from The Lamp Shop

It is Item No. R280 White Rice Paper
