Here you can see the pictures from three important stages of creating the Globe III table lamp.

1
The gourd. Shade.

Like the first Globe it’s precise model of the Earth.

Meridians and circles of latitude are marked every 20 degrees; the contours of the continents are reconstructed accordingly.

In case of this lamp I decided to make the land surface very smooth to show the beautiful veins of the gourd that make the character of the globe even more organic.

The base

“How do you make the base for your lamps?” – this one of the most frequently asked questions.

Here you can see how I made the base of my new Globe lamp and the details of its construction.

For sanding the clay I use Saburrtooth sand burs.


Antarctica. The closing part

The hole and the opening part have the shape of Antarctica. At the end the closing part was permanently closed into the gourd.

☆ The masking part on the inside of the gourd is made of very thin plywood
☆ First I use epoxy glue. The outer dark surface is epoxy resin mixed with wood dust.
