Korean design artist Kwon Jae Min created a unique pendant light made from thin sheets of locally-sourced wood. Fissures that run along the pendant light give it an exotic appearance and accentuates the expert wood craftsmanship.
I could see this a a potential DIY project - paint bulbs black and then carve some of the paint off to let the light shine through. While not specific for outdoor use, these Astral Lights would be a lovely addition to an enclosed porch :)
Did you know that you can buy "self-adhesive designer shades" at Jo-Ann's Fabric & Craft store. and put ANY fabric onto the lamp shades? And trim, and etc. They are SO simple! home-decor-diy-inspiration
