I make these lanterns from vintage aluminum colanders. This one is less spaceshippy and more feminine than her sisters, and throws a spectacular shadow.

These lamps cast a filtered light that's great for conversation, dining, listening to music, meditation, or even watching television. I hung this one over the bed to take these photographs, and found that the light it provided was soft and perfect for reading. The opening in the bottom lets out just the right amount of reflected light. And if you look up from directly below, you see the interior of the colander reflected in the bulb; it's a very neat effect.

This lamp is designed to be installed as a ceiling fixture, wired to the house electrics. (Be sure to consult a qualified electrician.) A canopy fitting made from a nice old coffeepot lid is included.

- Measures about 9 inches in diameter.
- A pull-chain switch turns it on and off.
- Comes with 60 watt silver top bulb.
- As configured, the drop from ceiling the ceiling is 27 inches to the bottom of the fixture; pull chain adds another 9 inches. Both of these lengths are adjustable. If you let me know the length of drop you need when you buy, I can make the chains longer or shorter for you. A small materials fee will be added for longer drop. Please contact me before purchasing.

Note: Shipping charges shown are from California to the East Coast. If you live closer and would like an adjusted shipping quote, contact me.
