A large lantern with circles carved into it, their pattern resembling a Spirograph set.

Product Detail:

From childhood memory to grown-up nightlight, the design on this gourd lantern will please anyone!

Using a large gourd, about 10 inches in diameter and the same height, I created a bit of light for a dark corner of your home. I started by cutting a small hole near the bottom. That hole, just 1 1/8 inch in diameter, allowed me to clean out the gourd "guts"; it is also where the light bulb fits in.

With that done, I drew many circles on the surface of the gourd, some connecting, others inside of another. I carved into the gourd's surface to make those circles, then drilled holes into the edges, like teeth in a cog. It is these "teeth" that let the light shine through, as seen in the photo. I used several colors of dye -- purple, yellow, green, aqua -- for the circles, against a background the color of saddle leather. The result is a piece of functional art that is stunning to see, whether it's lit up or not.

The lamp cord and bulb are included. 

Shipping within the US is included in the price of this item.
