angel's. trumpet.

The Angel's Trumpet is a ceiling light that looks sort of like an upside down blossoming flower and a lot more like some kind of alien infestation. Or even, perhaps, the trumpet of an angel. How does it achieve that effect? Because it's made out of sculpted Unyru Japanese paper. The 23" version will cost you $276, or $375 for 48".

Yeah, um. It looks "sort of like" a Brunfelsia candida:


(AKA "Angel's Trumpet")

Brugmansia candida, I wonder if they also make a devil's trumpet (Datura meteloides) version as a table lamp or torchiere.

Here's a link to photos of the plant, Brugmansia candida. http://www.tradewindsfruit.com/brugmansia_pictures.htm. From these you'll see the lamp looks pretty realistic.

Be nice to figure out where a person can purchase such a light. Can't find that info anywhere
