A series of lamps hand made in paper.

Sometimes it is worthwhile to stop up and take a close look at a project at an earlier stage than originally planned. These lamps were intended to be made in laser cut steel and textile, but during the process of model making, the many delicate qualities of the paper at hand outshone all original intensions. Commercially, paper for this project is not ideal. It offers too many practical problems. Cleaning, for one. But look at the light and the shadows. When the material is delicate, so is the light.
