Trout Lily (Erythronium americanum) - Floral Prism Desk Light
This hand-made desk light contains one preserved specimen of Trout Lily (Erythronium americanum), 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.
An iconic species of the northeastern US, Trout Lilies are an early to mid spring ephemeral lily that grow in broad swaths in the dappled light of spring forest floors, brightening the landscape with their brightly golden yellow nodding flowers and their whimsically gray-green polka-dotted leaves, to which their namesake is owed, their leaves supposedly resembling the appearance of a brook trout.
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.
