Geodesic Tiffany-style lampshade

Proofgrade walnut and tortoise shell acrylic. Stella tells me this thing is a Stellated dual 4 frequency octahedral geodesic sphere. Lots of different face types, and connectors. The lamp is a bit tall, so I’ve ordered one that is a few inches shorter. There are 2 colored LED smart bulbs inside. The faces have fingerprints and smudges, but those will wipe off.

Wow! Did you use Rub 'n Buff on the walnut?

No, no treatment, except for a little windex trying to clean the acrylic

I couldn’t decide if it was the light reflecting off the finish or if it was actually metallic. :slight_smile: It’s absolutely gorgeous!

The only issue I have had with the geodesic spheres was that they should be lamps. Now you have those too! :heart_eyes: :star_struck: :tada:

Wow, it looks like it was bronzed or at least matches the bronze really well!

I looks like it should be on an upscale showroom floor.
