Number 1 by pmpropmiester Number 1 by pmpropmiester
Well this is the results of my trip to California to the artist workshop. I've had ideas for sculptural lamps floating around in my head for the past 2 1/2 years. Ive drawn these ideas out but could not quite figure out how to bring them about. I went and bought some reed that i knew i could use for the frame work about a year ago, but still couldnt figure it all out. So one day im online i see this artist work and realize hes doing exactly what im wanting to do. So i contacted him and found out he was giving a workshop. So as you can see i went i saw i made. I've called this one Number 1 because it is just that the first of many other creations yet to come using this technique.

Given 2009-08-22
Number 1 by ~pmpropmiester. A very fluid and ethereal artwork that functions as a light, about 3-3 1/2 feet long by about 2-2 1/2 ft from top to bottom, made of paper and a reed framework. ( Featured by Kitten-of-Woe )

thank you. Yes thats one of my hopes actually. I just yesterday hung 3 pieces in an architecture firms street level window and certainly hope it generates some contacts and leads to furniture stores and interior designers.
Thank you again

I like how it's so calm and flowing.
you're an inspiration to people who don't know how to execute their ideas, proving, what seems impossible,only seems that way.

I'm glad you went for it taking that workshop. Now those thoughts stuck in your head for years have a way out, lol. Very kewl.

About your cord situation mentioned earlier, I remember seeing another deviant's leather sculpures a while back, with some very creative lamps too. Maybe you could go search her out for some iders on how she concealed some of her cords - sorry the name escapes me now. Have fun with the other elements your working on!

It's true it has a calming, airy effect, but at the same time it could be used for an energetic scene as well. Versatile and beautiful.
Well done ^.^
