Sweet Alyssum (Lobularia maritima) - Floral Prism Desk Light #1
$40.00 Sold Out
This hand-made desk light contains one preserved specimen of lavender colored Sweet Alyssum (Lobularia maritima), 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.
Sweet Alyssum - from the Greek word alyssum, meaning “without madness” - was once believed to have the capacity to cure rabidness and soothe feral animals, owing to it’s association with gentleness and calmness of spirit. In occult contexts it is said to ward off glamours and hexes, and in the language of flowers, the flower represents “worth beyond beauty”.
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.
