Box Dimensions: w: 7.5″ x d: 2.5″ x h: 1.75″

My tools are used by book artists such as Amy LeePard, Alicia Bailey, Larry Lou Foster, Mary Ann Sampson and Velma Bolyard. You may see my book binding tools in person at the Colophon Book Arts Supply, Kentuck Art Gallery and the Morgan Papermaking Conservatory.

I make each tool by hand, so no two tools will be exactly alike.

Illumination no. 2

For sale now through my Etsy Shop.

Meditation lamp influenced by the shoji lamps of Japan and the Arts and Crafts movement. I am interested in creating illuminations without the use of paper, only wood. It is my observation that using only wood to craft lamps gives the light a warm, natural element.

This illumination is perfect for yoga, meditation, quiet, peaceful and tranquil spaces. It’s great for rooms with an arts and crafts feel. I use one in my writing/painting room (pictured). It will add calm and focus to any room.

Wooden screens illuminate the beauty and depth of the wood, casting a soft pleasing glow. I am very excited to offer these lamps.

The illumination is made from spalted maple and black walnut, and uses a common bulb. The illumination was created using handtools. I cut and shaped the parts and joints using chisels, handsaws and handplanes.

Dimensions:

h:18″ x w:9.75″ x d”8″

Comes with a 6′ long cord with an on/off switch build in.

I am very proud and excited to offer this item. I am sure it will make a lovely addition to your home.

I am currently sold out of the wooden bone folders through my Etsy shop, but I am in the process of crafting a handful more to be listed soon.  I found a beautiful piece of spalted pecan to use as material for the boxes.  Please contact me for more information or to reserve a folder.
