So all it took was my wife saying "maybe we should get new lamps"....Used some steam bending, some power tools, some hand tools and voila…3 lamps with the same shades and different bases. The inspiration for the shade was from Nakashima's lamps. I added some carved detailing to the uprights on the shade for textural interest. Most of the joinery is hand cut, with the exception of the segmented circles and rings used for the shades. The lamps are made from air dried local newfoundland birch and some kiln dried walnut. Hope you like them…..although, my wife likes them so thats probably all that matters!
