Fabergé Inspired Lamp

You might remember the exquisite tessellated lamps of Ilan Garibi. I was happy to come across one of his newest creations made as an ode to Fabergé eggs. Composed of the durable and forgiving paper known as elephant hide, it was featured at a lighting and origami exhibition at Hankin Gallery in Holon, Israel this past winter.

Ilan subscribes to the basic tenets of origami - no glue, no cuts, just folds and creases. Check out his delightful new website.

I wish you a weekend as lovely as the lamp's glow, and if you celebrate Easter, may it be a joyous one.

Facebook Finds this past week include:

Paper money sculptures
Love to color? Easter egg print-out
Pretty paper-covered, laser-cut butterflies
Fab letterpress cards at a steal
A paper artist round-up
