Billy Hall’s Glowing Wood Sculptures

Photo: Glowing Wood Sculptures Artist Billy Hall uses a lathe to sculpt whole wood blocks thin enough to be used as lampshades. The shades are usually between 1/32 and 3/32 of an inch thick and coated with epoxy. Pictured above is “Luna”, a globular design made from Southern Yellow Pine. Link via DudeCraft
