Shaurya Sinha – Project 2

While open to interpretation, I designed this with the intension to use it as a small lamp. The box shaped lamp has celtic sailor knots engraved on five of its open faces, with a stand inside it to hold an electric tea light candle at the center, allowing for precision reflection of the celtic patterns on outside surfaces. The pattern on the lamp illustrates a celtic sailor knot with 39 crossing numbers.

I mention electric tea light candles because using a flame lite candle may overheat or burn the top of the lamp because of its close proximity to the candle stand.

The base of the box is designed to fit the lamp lid with minor obstruction to the celtic knot pattern. Both, the base and the lamp lid, are spaced apart to allow for separation. While the box is oriented with its top facing up, I would recommend printing it upside down to avoid using supports. Additionally, the carved patterns may require some minor supports to print that can be removed after the printing process.
