These lamps were inspired by the 4 elements: earth, wind, fire and water. The trees were chosen to represent these elements. Pine for earth, Birch for wind, Oak for fire and Willow for water. I constructed the lamps out of Chestnut, Poplar and Black Walnut. The trees were drawn on Korean rice paper, hanji, and stretched four panels for each lamp. Then I chose a very low glowing LED bulb. The finish was a clear matte acrylic and then buffed with bees wax.
