protea "pincushion" flower lamp large, white
An incredible conversation piece! Inspired by this classic wild flower of South Africa, the pincushion Protea provides a gorgeous light through it's delicately crafted petals and clear beads. The Protea lamp is a lovely piece of craftsmanship. The Protea's petals can be bent in or out to allow more or less light through.
The unique wire art originates from rural South Africa. For many years, due to a lack of resources to buy proper toys, youngsters fashioned their own toys out of discarded wire coat hangers, tin cans and whatever else they could get their hands on. The protea flower lamp is handmade by artists of a fair trade organisation in South Africa. This company has a social mission of tackling unemployment and poverty in South Africa.
