Handmade banana leaf and abaca paper, basket reed

15 x 15 x 12 inches


From the maker:

“The lamp is a meditation on weaving, paper, and banana leaves illuminated to highlight the complexity of care in the making. The paper was handmade by myself from the harvesting of the banana leaf to the beating of fibers for sheet-forming. I was interested to see how paper and reed could substitute for one another in this project, such as when the reed weaving turns into paper weaving and the negative spaces in the reed structure become filled in with paper.”
