Shoji lantern

This lantern is designed for an end table and works perfectly for reading. Flared legs and a curved roof provide a pleasant counterbalance for the more linear quality of the shoji panes and the kumiko. The panes are backed by translucent Warlon chosen for its fire resistance although the lamp itself uses cool LEDs. A whimsical piece of black bamboo provides interest atop the wide roof.

I made this in the workshop of and with the patient mentorship of Jay van Arsdale.
