Yesterday, I decided to build a Japanese style box lantern.
However, I love the lines and simplicity of forms like the one on the right.
As you can see, I've assembled the basic elements (photographed on my iPod while watching the Daily Show last night).
Next- I need to decide on a structure for a handle... and decide whether to add any surface decoration.
For the lantern, I think that I'll build the handle, as well as add legs, using a similar element.
I don't like the proportions in the drawing yet- room for more work.
I'm then going to post this out in our yard, and hope that it illuminates the way to Zeniba's house. Or maybe Lantern Waste.
I'll revisit this when I have images of the finished piece.
