I’ve had this lamp for about 20 years. It belonged to my Grandmother and then my mother and then me. I’ve had mixed feelings about the lamp. I remember it in my Grandmother’s house and I thought it was very special when I was a child. When I inherited it I decided it was rather gaudy and didn’t go with my furniture but I felt compelled to use it. This is my favorite place to read.I’ve made this image using permanent markers on a piece of tile. It was an experiment to see how the materials worked. I sprayed damar varnish to seal it and the spray caused the lines to run in spots.
