Repurposed Metal Lampshade

I saw this lampshade at an artist’s house in New Zealand. It was really striking and created a beautiful pattern at night. Even during the day it reflected the suns rays and lit up the room from time to time. It’s made from discarded metal tongs which have been welded together. The light is shone through it from above, allowing the light to bounce off it from different angles rather than seeking to escape from within.
