Description

The jellyfish is a very curious piece of art. Absolutely unique and self-defined, this lamp will create a less than subtle first impression. Designed for whimsy, yet strikingly elegant, the domed shade is covered in real fossilized cocoa leaves. Each wrought iron tentacle grasps a single glass bead stinger.

Features

Long, slender, wrought iron tentacles, each embracing small glass beads, make this piece. We spent a year selecting the perfect gauge of metal, which creates a sturdy yet graceful lamp. The frame is constructed of wrought iron, making the lamp very strong and durable; It’s powder coated in order to ensure the longevity of its color. Fossilized cocoa leaf lampshade. Fossilization is the process of drying leaves over a three to four month period and then hand rubbing the chlorophyll of the leaf so only the leaf’s skeleton remains. Once the chlorophyll is removed, the leaf is stained in organic dyes. Since the leaves are natural, each one will absorb dye differently. The resulting effect is a lamp with different hues and shades (sometimes within the same leaf). Once the leaf is stained, it is adhered to a heat resistant backing. The artists cut each leaf to ensure that no leaf will overlap. Finally, we use a strong sealant to ensure the stability and integrity of the shade.

Setup/Care

We recommend against placing your lamp in direct sunlight. If cleaning is required, use a dry cloth or duster. We do not suggest liquid cleaners. These lamps will not require any special maintenance.

Product Usage

Compact fluorescent light bulbs are highly recommended. These bulbs will get nice and bright without the added heat of a standard incandescent bulb. These bulbs also last much longer, in many cases over five years. On average, a 13-watt fluorescent bulb will create the same lumens of light as a standard 60-watt light bulb and a 26-watt fluorescent light bulb will have the same light output as a 100-watt incandescent bulb.

Expert Review

Fossilized cocoa leaf lampshades… Fossilization is the process of drying leaves over a three to four month period and then hand rubbing the chlorophyll of the leaf so only the leaf’s skeleton remains. This is a labor-intensive process and no corrosive chemicals are used. Once the chlorophyll is removed, the leaf is stained in organic dyes. Since the leaves are natural, each one will absorb dye differently. The resulting effect is a lamp with different hues and shades (sometimes within the same leaf). There are a few cases in which the leaf may have a small tear before it was adhered to the lampshade; due to the low-impact sealant we use, no tear will increase in size nor will any leaf pull from the shade. We would like to point out that only 20 percent of the leaves make it through the entire process for use for our shades. Once the leaf is stained, it is adhered to a heat resistant backing; similar to the backing found on any standard lamp. The artists cut each leaf to ensure that no leaf will overlap. Finally, we use a strong sealant to ensure the stability and integrity of the shade.
