$40.00 Sold Out
This hand-made desk light contains one preserved specimen of Wood Squill (Scilla siberica), preserved in a solid obelisk-shaped prism of resin, underlit by a warm LED light embedded into the resin itself, and finally mounted within a base made of 3D printed wood PLA - a mixture of plant-based, biodegradable plastic and Poplar wood pulp.
Wood Squill, otherwise known as Siberian Squill, is a Russian native wildflower, blooming in the very early spring in forest clearings. It is widely naturalized due to it's use as a garden plant, prized for it's vivid blue blooms - a rarity in the botanical world.
The light measures approximately 102mm tall from tip to base and about 43mm wide at the base (4" by 1 11/16"). It is powered by two replaceable #CR2032 batteries and can be powered on and off via a twisting switch under the base. For your convenience, your order will include a replacement set of batteries.
The specimen has been dried thoroughly and coated in a UV resistant finish prior to being embedded in epoxy resin. The cap and findings are made of sturdy stainless steel.
The package will be carefully hand wrapped in bubble wrap, then wrapped with tissue paper and twine.
***Please note*** that this piece came out with small bubbles on the surface of the piece, as can be seen in the lit-up shot. It is a minor aesthetic flaw, and one that didn't seem appropriate to keep from selling the piece, due to these lights being in somewhat high demand, but I wanted to make that clear.
