Oh my gourd, lighten up will you?

CALABARTE CARVED LAMPHow much do I love these lamps?  I can’t even count the ways.

Designed and crafted by Polish artist Przemek Krawczynski from dried gourds—you heard me gourds—these lamps are so much more than just lamps. I just need to throw out everything in the lounge room so this can take pride of place.

I’ve only shown you a few images here so you can check out more of  Przemek’s work on Facebook and Flickr and be a-mazed.

He is also going to be selling his pieces on eBay. With the recent great interest in his work it seems a fair way for everyone to have a chance of buying one, bringing it home and loving it forever. Except I just saw the price it went for so maybe not any time soon <sobs>.

I might have to plant some gourds instead. Pretty sure that’s as far as that great idea will go.

About gillianloves

I decided there was not enough laughing in my life so I set to and started to design greeting cards in addition to my other design work. I'm happy to make people smile and to show that sending something really good takes as little effort as sending something pretty ordinary. I fully believe that if you can laugh about it someday you may as well laugh about it today. And also that we are just about as happy as we try to be. But you should know, Pollyanna I'm not. Even I might want to slap her after a day or so.
