Woodworker: Brett MacLearnsberryThis beech blossom wall lamp was MacLearnsberry’s introduction to—among other things—bent lamination. The 22-year-old wanted the shape to suggest that it had grown out of the wall, and when the lights are on, he says the beech shades seem to come to life. Each shade consists of eight ribs, spanned by a piece of beech veneer backed with 1⁄16-in.-thick acrylic. Other woods are hickory and mahogany. The lamp is 16-in. deep by 24-in. wide by 36-in. tall.
