Ellen Kaspern "Sycamore Twig Lantern"
Materials: Mahogany, cooper, sycamore, poplar, brass
Process: The wooden lantern has a mortise & tenon case construction which is made out of mahogany then dyed black with shoe leather polish. The top is copper which I bent using a shop-made break. The candle is on a dovetail slide. The latch and slide pull/door stop are sycamore twigs. This piece was inspired by a twig table that I saw at the The Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, MA.
Dimensions: 19" h x 8.25" w x 8.25" d
