MARCH 2011 TABLE LAMP XI EVOLUTION The lamp is made of Senegalese gourd. White carvings are deeper layer of white wood which allows some light to pass through it. The base is carved from wood and finished with natural oil.
By Day Its a Unique Sculpture While At Night It Comes Alive
As an avid lamp collector, I about died when I saw these carved lamps made from dried gourds by Calabarte. Gourds from Senegal are meticulously hand drilled, allowing light to shine through the fine patterns.
These are awesome! Hollow lamp with a dry gourd. Wonderful patterns carved into the deep shell allows light to pass through. Because the shape of the fruit is to determine the nature of each lamp is unique.
