Ikea Hacker

I have always liked the way light filters through handtrown porcelain; it reminds me of the rings of Saturn. It has long been the plan to make new lampshade for the Ikea lamp BASISK. The lamp is simple but has the perfect fitting making it really easy to change the shade. Perfect for me since I am a potter, not an electrician. We have three of these lamps by our sofa, and I love the way the shades gives out light so similar to candles.

So you put that on top of the other. You have many clever ideas, Mette.

(Also liked the "plastic" you put in your big windows for softening the bright winterlight)

Happy New Year, far away friend.
Your lampshades are so much more beautiful than the original.
