A fantastic composition of a polished burled root wood from which springs stems and leaves of patinated copper carrying four lights made of real sea urchin shells inserted in petal like grips. When the lights are on they glow in a wonderful symphony of colors. The lamp is attributed to Curtis Jere (Curtis Freiler and Jerry Fels) in New York, known for sculptural metal artwork sometimes incorporating items of natural origin.
