The Wooden Bulb

The art in question is a combination of the Japanese ancient art Rokuro with the latest technology; although it is very hard to find about Rokuro, even on the internet, few sites have explained this technique which utilizes handheld lathes and fine wood. An artist by the name of Ryosuke Fukusada, brings up an idea of mixing this art with the bulb technology. The turning of wood can easily create a symmetrical and smooth item like a bowl, and the lathes take off very thin pieces of wood that are strong and flexible enough to wrap around a light bulb. When the bulbs are switched on, the light highlights the grains of wood which gives a very pleasant effect.
