A strikingly beautiful one-of-a-kind natural stone-gemstone table lamp sculpture by artist John Foster
This original work of art that is so unique and beautiful you will never see another quite like it. The artistic complex technical concept was developed by John over a period of several years.
It was created from a variety of colorful stones that were selected personally by the artist from various sites ranging from Western Canada to Eastern Alabama. It also was created from gemstones that were selected from various sources around the world.
The Rose, Daisy, and Impatient blossoms were carved by hand under water using diamond tools. The stems and leaves were hand-cut and formed from treated quality steel and brass and the entire sculpture is held together with high-tech permanent fixative, solder, and standard brass lamp parts. The entire composition is coated with crystal clear acrylic to protect from stains and to bring out the beautiful natural color of the stones.
The stone types are: white Colorado Alabaster, mauve Soapstone, brown Marble, green-black Serpentine, Classic Yellow Marble, Brucite, Premium Snow White Quartz & Rose Quartz, White Alabama Marble and Butterscotch Onyx.
The gemstones are: Red Ruby, green-gray Emerald, Pink Opal, green Peridot, Golden Citrine, Amethyst, Tigers Eye, yellow Jasper, and Clear quartz
The complex stone base is Gabbro, a stone similar to Granite. And the base is highlighted with large medium green Jade, light green Jade, blue-green Jade, and clear Quartz gemstones.
