Pair of Sculptural Cypress Root Knees Table Lamps


Natural creations, these lamps appear as abstract sculptures. Both are made from cypress "knees," the root outgrowths that cypress trees develop in wetlands. To complete the organic look, the metal lamp columns are wrapped in rush, and the finials are made from the tips of cypress knees. Sold sans shades.
