tabletop colander shadow lantern


This groovy upcycled lamp/lantern made from vintage aluminum housewares decorates walls and ceiling with a lacy pattern of light and shadow. Place it high up in a kid's room to make a little magic to fall asleep by, or use it as an accent in your living room or den. You could even put in a colored bulb for special occasions.

- About 20 inches tall, 8-inch footprint. Shade is 8 5/8 inches in diameter.
- Takes one small clear standard-base bulb, 25 or 40 watt. Comes with incandescent bulb, which provides the crisp shadows shown in the photos. (Other types of bulbs will also work but the shadows won't be the same.)
- On/off turn switch.
- Cord is about 5 feet long.

Shipping from United States

In most cases, postage to the western U.S. will be lower than what's shown. Don't hesitate to contact me for accurate shipping costs to your location. In any case, if shipping is significantly lower than what you are charged, I will automatically refund the excess.

I am also happy to ship overseas or use expedited shipping. Please contact me to set the process in motion.

I insist on insurance. That cost is included in shipping.


Most of my pieces are made from vintage objects on the outside, with new functional parts inside. This means they will show signs of their age, which is part of their appeal, but the works will last for a long time. Unfortunately, photographs can unintentionally either disguise or exaggerate the wear on a piece. I encourage you to take this into consideration when making the decision to buy. If you find you aren't happy with your choice, you have 14 days in which to return it for a refund of the item price, not including shipping.


If you have an object you think would make a good lamp, I may be able to help. Use the link to request a custom order or drop me a note. Custom orders are subject to a 20% nonrefundable deposit, as noted above.
