The Natural Guyabano Wall Sconce in Multi-Color


The Guyabano Wall Sconce adds natural charm and gentle light to any room

The Natural Guyabano Wall Sconces are made from the leaves of the evergreen guyabano tree. After a process called fossilization, the leaf is dyed with organic, non-corrosive dye to create the desired color. Only the leaves that remain fully in-tact are used on the lamps. The remaining leaves are then re-purposed for use in other projects. The powder coated frame is constructed from wrought iron, making the lamp very strong and durable. The leaves are then applied to a backing which is bound with natural twine to the wrought iron frame.

This wall sconce comes corded for easy plug in, or the plug end may be cut off and the sconce hard-wired into your receptacle.


Dimensions: 14"Wide x 14"Tall x 6"Deep

More About Fossilization:
Fossilization is the process of drying leaves over a three to four month period and then hand rubbing the chlorophyll of the leaf so only the leaf’s skeleton remains. This is a labor-intensive process and no corrosive chemicals are used. Once the chlorophyll is removed, the leaf is stained with organic dyes. Since the leaves are natural, each one will absorb the dye differently. The Guyabano TreeThe resulting effect is a lamp with different hues and shades (sometimes within the same leaf), making each and every lamp unique. There are a few cases in which the leaf may have a small tear before it was adhered to the lampshade; due to the low-impact sealant we use, no tear will increase in size nor will any leaf pull from the shade.


More About Guyabano:
The guyabano tree is a broadleaf flowering evergreen tree native to the deep tropical region of the Americas and sub-Saharan Africa. The guyabano tree grows large spiky fruits that are often used in traditional medicines as well as eastern delicacies. The leaves used for the sconces are evergreen. Though the guyabano trees shed and re-grow their leaves throughout the year--similar to the Madrone trees of the Pacific Northwest. The steady leaf drop provides a regular and renewable source for creating sconces and other lights and lamps.


Guyabano Wall Sconce Care:
We do not recommend placing your lamp in direct sunlight as it may cause the leaves to fade. If cleaning is required, use a dry cloth or duster. We do not suggest using liquid cleaners. Other than the occasional dusting or light bulb change, these lamps do not require any special maintenance.
 

Light Bulbs:
The Natural Guyabano Wall Sconce uses 1 light bulb. We suggest using compact fluorescent light bulbs in your lamp. These bulbs will get nice and bright without the added heat compared to a standard incandescent bulb. The bulb also will last much longer, in many cases over five or more years. On average, a 13-watt fluorescent bulb will create the same lumens of light as a standard 60-watt light bulb and a 26-watt fluorescent light bulb will have the same light output as a 100-watt incandescent bulb. Please check with the light bulb manufacturer for your specific bulb specifications. Fluorescent light bulbs are considered to be a great alternative to standard light bulbs since they promote energy efficiency. We wanted to create artistic lamps that can be functional; therefore, we designed our lamps with these bulbs in mind. If you use an incandescent bulb we suggest max 40 watt. LED lights may also be used.
