Ah this is inspiring. What materials did you use? Just paperclay? I somehow would be scared that it would end up catching fire.

Thank you! I use several materials: the base is a styrofoam hollow ball and the base of the towers are toilet paper rolls. Then all is covered in a air drying clay, which is basically a mixture of cellulose, woodlglue, salts and some additives. And yes, this could catch fire when it gets too hot. Therefore I only use LED-lights and a prefixed cord and fitting. LED doesn't get warm. Anything else would melt the styrofoam...

Oh, I wouldn't even have thought that the styrofoam would let the light through that well. Thanks for your reply! I need to try out something like that in the near future. Why buy boring lamps if you can make such individual pieces :D

Absolutely love that this has lighting! Simply beautiful!
Approximately how long did it take you to complete?! I feel like my expectations for projects like this are way out of whack -- just curious!

thanks!

Thank you! This one took me quite a lot of time, but that has to with all the tiny details this lamp has. I think this one took 40 to 50 hours to complete. You can make a smaller more basic version in a lot less time though. The first one I made I did in a weekendworkshop, which took about 10 hours.

I have absolutely no problem sharing the tools of the trade - I'll send you a note with a basic how to.
