PS: sorry for the messy part in the top of the lamp, it is not a part of it !! i just had to take a picture in a hurry :)
Hey everyone, here i am again, and this time ii would like to share with you, another instructable on how to make this star pattern inspired lamp. if you've seen my other instructable on how to make the moresque lamp : http://www.instructables.com/id/Moresque-lampe/ so you know what i am talking about :)
again i just tried to make something original. So for this project you'll need alot of patience, and a lot of accurency, otherwise, it will turn messy !
For those who are lucky enough to have a laser cutter or a CNC , there is an advantage, for me, i cannot afford one, so i will use the traditional way !
The lamp can be made with any material, cardboard, aluminum, plastic, plywood .. you choose your material and color, the principle is the same.
For me i will use plywood with a 2 mm thickness for this project.
i'll do my best explaining the different steps, if something is unclear bear with me, and feel free to ask :-)
Step 1: The design
So what way my inspiration ? ...... well it is still my love to patterns found in different mosaic in southern spain and morocco, do a search on the internet you'll find what i am talking about ( just search in google for : "arabic patterns" or "islamic patterns" )
this website was too informativ too :
i used illustrator to draw the patterns, and the export them to 3Ds max there i modeledl the sphere and texture it .. to see how it is going to turn out, when it is done, i tried to copy the model on paper, and some adjustments, here and there it worked out
