"Etsy Find: Gourd Art Lampshades -- We definitely have a soft spot for pendant lighting of all kinds, and these are pleasingly, colorfully, definitely different. The light they cast is soft, more like mood lighting, but would make a beautiful focal point overhead. These were handmade in Turkey, underscoring the wonder that is Etsy. They remind us a bit of Mexican tin stars, but come off a bit softer." Gourds Lamps, Crafts Ideas, Lamps Shades, Decks Lights, Gourds Lights, Gourds Ideas, Gourds Art, Gourds Crafts, Crafty Ideas
Awesome Gourd Lamp @studiotempera on etsy ~ I never thought to make a lamp form a gourd. How fun!
Art circles craft all around these exquisitely carved, drilled and etched gourd shells shipped from Senegal. The elaborate patterns are not just for show, though – they are made to cast spectacular light displaces on interior ceilings, walls and floors.
