Note the production picture with the original sheet of figured maple veneer showing the strips removed for the sides of the radiating fins. The veneer is sequence matched along the front edge and again along the back spine as if the lamp unfolded fan-like from a single natural wood face. The picture shows the second stage of multiple finish layers for the veneer; (1, tung oil; 2, green dye, 3. clear shellac, 4. blue-green dye, 5. gloss lacquer).
Pictures cannot do justice to the unique quality of light and impact of Golden Heart Illumination lanterns. The energy balanced within rigid geometric forms and flowing irregular paper fiber & natural wood is quite hypnotic and soothing. The structure of the folded, woven and layered paper lantern is remarkably strong because of the durable transparent adhesive and shoji paper binding it into a sturdy cohesive unit. Whether in bright daylight or darkness, you will not be disappointed with this unique light sculpture.
