Apple (Malus domestica) - Floral Prism Desk Light
$40.00 Sold Out
This hand-made desk light contains one preserved specimen of Apple blossom (Malus domestica), 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.
One of the most iconic singular species in existence, the domestic apple has had more effect on human culture and folklore than perhaps almost any other plant. This particular specimen was gathered from a wild-growing tree in a now abandoned and wild growing orchard near the base of Mt. Greylock in Massachusetts.
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.
