Handmade Alphabet

L is for Lamp

Lamps – from hanging pendant lights to, desk lamps, floor lamps, and sconces – these international lampmakers pride themselves in creating beautiful handmade lighting fixtures using different materials.

I personally like lamps made from recycled found stuff like the tree log desk light or the vintage camera-turn-lamp featured here or the upcycled table light which is made out of a discarded coffee can. Lamps with modern, industrial vibe are also a favorite – they are wonderful side-by-side with vintage collectibles. And then there are the origami and paper mache lampshades that add whimsy to any room. Here are just a few that caught my eye:
