Handmade Gourd Lamps by Gourdlight

Lampshades are made of gourd- amazing exotic fruit native to Africa, and at a very early date spread throughout the world by human migrations. Design of every lamp is achieved after carefully selecting dried shells of gourd fruit and drilling patterns into them. Different parts and colors of the lampshades are designed by carving deeper or shallower into layers of wood. Every lamp has few thousands perforations in different diameters which allows light to shine through the lampshade and cast the patterns on the walls surrounding. Lamps are finished of with jewellery waxed strings which consort with the lamps design. Each of the lamp is unique because shape was originally created by nature and their designs are always varied.
Light from such exotic lamps will surely give any room an amazing atmosphere.
