British willow weaver and basketmaker, Cherry Chung of Manchester, created this delightful 1.5m mushroom lamp. How wonderfully creative and perfectly fitting for this week’s theme.
About her art, her web site states:
She was hooked by the direct nature of working some sticks with only her hands into an object which could be functional and aesthetic. The connection with ancient human ancestry is still present in some enduring primeval instinct.
Mother Nature is more than happy to be a model for any of our creative endeavors. We are encouraged to let her inspire us with her natural beauty and design.

My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light in delightful, inspiring ways
For me, creating mandalas is more than just coloring pretty patterns in a circle. I do it because my spiritual evolution and creativity require it of me. My mandala designs come about within an active meditative state, connected with my higher self, my spiritual guides and nature spirits.
Together, we bring into form, mandala art the allows me to re-connect with my own inner peace and joy, letting me explore and expand my own creative spirit to however far and in whatever direction I want to take it.
As part of my own spiritual journey, I encourage, and hopefully inspire, others to explore their own creativity, to help them re-connect with their own inner peace and joy. As a means to that end, I make all of my mandalas available for people to color. Why should I have all the fun?
