Bread Lamps Made From Actual Bread

Japanese artist Yukiko Morita has created lamps out of real loaves of bread. Made from a simple bread recipe and then coated in resin — a battery-powered LED lamp is inserted to help add some mood light to any room. These battery-powered lamps give off a warm glow that is exactly how we picture fresh bread in our hearts and minds.

The 27 year old artist calls her line Pampshade which combines the Japanese word for bread (Pan) with lamp shade. She got the idea for Pampshade lights when she was working at a small bakery in Kyoto and noticed the way sunlight shone through a hollowed out French baguette. After trial and error with over 300 prototypes using the leftovers from the bakery each day, she discovered that hollowing out the bread and drying the shell in the oven gives the best results. She coats the baked shell in resin and inserts the light bulb. via: psfk
