Chista, the online portal that identifies the
extraordinary in the everyday, presents lampshades in stone and paper by artist
Artist Amanda Guest creates minimal line drawings on
handmade paper. Upon request from A. Langotsky, she has made a line of paper
lampshades that are simultaneously minimal and sensual. She makes the paper
from 100% Linen and cotton rag often embedding threads or nails in the process.
The lamps have the unique combination of subtlety and presence that has been
recognized in the artist's work and the combination of paper and stone mirror
the artist's pursuit of the balance of feeling and structure. Once the lamp is
illuminated, the silhouette of the threads and the layers of paper create a new
"drawing" in three dimensions.
