Exotic Gourd Lamps by Calabarte

Creative spaces need creative lighting! These lamps are made by the polish artist who creates under the brand name Calabarte. He uses gourds, a dried, lignified fruit, brought  from Senegal and makes each individual lamp through a process of manual perforation and framing. His work is manual and very tedious with the different patterns being designed by carving either deeper or shallower into the layers of the fruit. This allows the light to shine through each perforation, exposing intricate patterns on any wall.Every lamp is a one of a kind and each rests on a base carved in wood and finished with Italian natural oil.
