Botanical Illuminations - Handmade art lamps
I express my love and appreciation for beautiful, ambient light by creating these flower lamps. During a 2-year stay in S. Korea, I discovered the ancient tradition of Hanji, (handmade paper) and its multitude of applications both historically and today. I first studied basic home decor uses for Hanji, but when I saw lamps like these in a store in Seoul, I fell in love and resolved to make one for myself. I found one of the most gracious teachers on earth and worked with her for nine months on all of the basic techniques that I use today. My designs continue to evolve, and the use of variety of bases including driftwood, rocks, granite and wood offer endless expression. Customizing is a huge part of my business, and many wonderful designs have come from collaborations with my customers.
