Handmade Bear Silhouette Table Lamp

This bear silhouette shade lamp would look awesome in a log home, a summer or winter camp, or any home with a nature theme.
The base is made of a yellow birch tree that my father cut down on his property in Western Vertmont. After drying the wood, it was turned on a lathe. The dark circle in the middle is part of the bark. It has three coats of polyurthane. The brown cord measures 6 foot, and there is a push switch socket.
The hardback creamy-white fabric shade features a hand cut silhouette applied to the inside of the shade and only shows when the light is in on. The shade measures T-6", B-15", H-9".
The lamp measures 22-1/2" tall and is for sale on my website at http://www.shades-etc.com/silhouette.htm.

Handmade Lampshade Order Finished

Just finished this lampshade today. It took six hours of cleaning, fitting, sewing, and glueing but it's finally done. This shade fits over a glass globe. I hope to have a picture of it on the lamp to post here soon. It measures 17" across the top, 19" across the bottom, and is 11" high.I used an ivory crepe fabric for the outside and a crepe-backed satin in ivory for the inside. The trim is a gold braid gimp. This lampshade was machine sewn and then handsewn to the top and bottom rings.

I think it turned out nicer than the photo shows. :)
