The flower lamp transformation

flower lamp 7

This beautifull flower lamp was created by Orit in the Studio. On morning, Orit came into the studio brought her new project in for our craft classes, a simple Ikea floor lamp that really needed transformation !

We started looking around for inspiration and two direction came up :

The gorgeous rope work of Christian Astuguevieille and the paper flower lampshade of Radiance store.

Orit started designing her lamp and one by one we would solve the technical challenges. The process was pleasant and went smoothly. Orit started sinking patiently in the creation that requested slow and precise repetitive hand work, wrapping the rope and creating the paper flower petals. Orit’s work reflects the peacefulness that she placed in the creative process.

Step 1 : Starting to rope wrap the lamp with natural fibre ropes with white glue
Step 2 : Planning the flowers and selecting the right paper. We used natural hand made paper
Step 3 : With thin wire we shaped the flower petals
step 4 : Cut and glue the paper on the wire shaped petal with white glue spread on the wire.
step 5 : With hot glue we placed the petals in place.
step 6 : We roped around the plastic lamp basis were the petals were in place with a slightly thicker rope

Amazing transformation !
