Mushroom Lamps Embedded with LEDs on Driftwood

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Japanese artist Yukio Takano has a knack for recreating the delicate properties of mushrooms with dyed resins illuminated from the inside with hidden LED lights. The electrical components are then hidden inside real driftwood bases that sometimes incorporate a fancy retro “on/off” switch. Takano first exhibited his lights 12 years ago and they now disappear as fast as he creates them. Unfortunately, the pieces are too delicate to ship overseas, so he only produces and sells them locally.
